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

Johan Kriek was an Offensive player. In total, 50% of his points were won at the net (with ro without a volley to play) and this results was far above the average fo the ATP players. He varied well all kind of net approaches but the one he did the most remained the serve & volley (29% of his total won points). At the net, he had a good hand missing only 26% of his volleys. 

Offensive / High

Johan Kriek had a Serve in the average of the players of his time. He made on average the same ratio of aces/service winners which means that he could take an edge with this shot against the weaker Server but not the best in that business.

Server / Medium

Johan Kriek could not be regarded as a Tempo player because the quality of his backhand was far below average and he mainly used the slice on that side. Tempo players are effective with their backhand taking the ball on the rise close to their baseline. 

Tempo / Low

From the back of the court, Johann Kriek was a Puncher. He often took risks with his forehand and made on average 2.5 times more points with his forehand than his rivals. He could also Punch sometimes his single-handed backhand but the results were not as good as the ones with the forehand. His return was also Punched and he won many points this way.

Puncher / High

Winning only 28% of his points by the errors of his Rivals, Johan Kriek was nothing but a Retriever. His mind-set was so Offensive and aggressive that he did not count on his rivals' errors to win a match.

Retriever / Low
