Server / High

From the back of the court, Tim Henman can be regarded as a Puncher. He often used his forehand approach to come in and was effective doing so. In his case, we can say that he was an Offensive / Puncher when he did not play the serve & volley. 

Puncher / Medium

Using the backhand slice a lot, Tim Henman was nothing but a Tempo player. Tempo players are aggressive with their flat backhands and take an edge against their rivals making more points than them with this shot. 

Tempo / Low

Tim Henman was a dominant Offensive player. In total, 51% of his points were won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stand much above the general average of the ATP players. When compared with his rivals, he took the biggest edge against them with the quality of his volley. He made made on average two times more points with that shot than them. His favorite way to come in was the serve & volley (34% of his total points won) but he was also good with the 1-2 approach right after his serve and the baseline approach. 

Offensive / Very High

Winning 37% of his points  by the errors of his rivals, Tim Henman cannot be qualified as a Retriever. He played only 25% of his rallies over 5 shots (far below average) because his goal was to charge the net as soon as he had a chance. The only shot he could Retrieve with was the backhand slice but he often uses that shot to come in too.
