It wasn't that bad at all

Without nuances it looked like this:

"All-serve guys": Ivanisevic, Krajicek, Rosset
Serve and volleyers: Edberg, Becker, Stich, Sampras, Forget, T.Martin, J.McEnroe
Offensive baseliners: Courier, Novacek, Korda, Agassi, W.Ferreira, Lendl
Grinders: Chang, Bruguera, Gustafsson, C.Costa, Muster, Chesnokov, Krickstein

IMO it was quite balanced and entertaining.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
