Nicolas Massu's game style was all around his excellent topspin forehand. He could Punch or Retrieve on that side and that makes him at time a dominant Puncher or a dominant Retriever. He made on average 15% more points with the forehand than his rivals and it was right after his serve that he was the most dangerous with that shot.
Puncher / High
Nicolas Massu could add an Offensive side to his game by coming in when he had a chance. His percentage of points won at the net net was very high (81%) because he moved forward when he got a big edge with his forehand. In total 12% of his points were won at the net and this result just stand in the average.
Offensive / Medium
Playing with heavy topspin with the forehand and retrieving from a far away position with the backhand Nicolas Massu cannot be regarded as a Tempo player at all. Tempo players play close to the baseline and take the ball on the rise and this was not his case.
Tempo / Low
51% of Nicolas Massu's points were won by the errors of his rivals and this result was above average. As said previously, he could Punch with the topspin forehand but also wear his rivals' backhand down. His mind-set was also the one of a genuine Retriever: fighting like a warrior on every single point.
Retriever / High
Nicolas Massu was often making less aces/service winners than his rivals. His ratio of first Serve unreturned was below average (24%) and he had to counterbalance that by the quality of his baseline game.
