Mark Philippoussis is one of the best Server o all time. He made on average almost two times more aces/service winners than his rivals and when that first serve was in 62% of the time it was unreturned. The Serve was by far his biggest shot and he optimized it by playing most of the time the serve & volley.
Server / Very high
Mark Philippousis wasn't a Tempo player at all. Having a big forehand take back and a single-handed backhand, he didn't really take the ball on the rise close to the baseline.
Tempo / Low
Only 26% of Mark Philippoussis' points were won by the errors of his rival and this is far below the average of the ATP players. He didn't count on his opponents' mistakes to win a match at all.
Retriever / Very low
Possessing such a big Serve, Mark Philippoussis played the serve & volley most of the time (Offensive). 45% of his total points were won this way (with or without a volley to play) against 2% for the 1-2 punch approach & 5% for the baseline approach. He also used more than average the return volley (3% of his total points won).
Offensive / Very High
From the back of the court, Mark Philippousis was a Puncher. Even though he won less points on average with the forehand & the backhand than his opponents he still took risks with these shots when he could. The lower ratio of points is explained by the fact that Mark Philippoussis was much more at the net than average.
