Compare his Stats with the ones of the Other Austrian Players here 

Thomas Muster was an outstanding Retriever. His main game plan was to destroy his rivals' backhand down and as a consequence he made on average 40% fewer errors on that side than them. In total, 48% of his points were won by the errors of his opponents and this reulst was far above the average of the ATP players of his time.

Retriever / High

Thomas Muster was not only a baseline player he could also come in to get an edge (Offensive). In total, 17% of his point were won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stand just above average. His favorite way to move forward was the baseline approach with his forehand.

Offensive / Medium

Playing with topspin on both side, Thomas Muster could not be regarded as a Tempo player at all. Tempo players play close to their baseline and take the ball on the rise and this was not his case.  

Tempo / Low

Besides being a Retriever, Thomas Muster was also an excellent Puncher. When compared with his rivals he took a big edge making on average 20% more points with his topspin forehand than them. His lefty forehand strategy was to wear his rivals down with the forehand cross and to attack them with the forehand down the line.

Puncher / High

Opting for a high first serve percentage, Thomas Muster could not be regarded as a Server at all. He made on average 30% fewer aces/service winners than his rivals and did not count on this shot to win a match. 

Serve / Low
