Richard Krajicek was a dominant Server who made on average 80% more aces/service winners than his rivals. It was by far his best shot and when that first serve was in 54% of the time it was unreturned. 

Server / Very high

From the back of the court, Richard Krajicek was a Puncher. Even though he won less points on average with the forehand than his opponents he still took risks with this shots when he could. The lower ratio of points is explained by the fact that Richard Krajicek was much more at the net than average. 

Puncher / Medium

Only 26% of Richard Krajicek's points were won by the errors of his rivals and this result was far below average. He didn't count on his opponents' mistakes to win a match  but when he had to play backhands (mainly on his return games) he often Retrieved with slice.

Retriever / Low

Richard Krajicek was a serve & volleyer (Offensive) with a huge Serve. 70% of his points were won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this results was far above average. He mainly played the serve & volley (61% of his total points won) but also the chip & charge and the baseline approach. At the net he had a good hand missing only 27% of his volleys. 

Offensive / Very high

Richard Krajicek wasn't a Tempo player at all. He could take the ball on the rise on the forehand side but it was more to Punch it than to play it in Tempo. The single-hand backhand was more played in a Retrieving way with slice. 

Tempo / Low
