Not a hard hitter, but what you might call a touch player with extraordinary control. He won the Wimbledon and French Open junior titles in 1979. Extremely talented and promising player that never quite made it to the very top. His highest ranking was in the 20s.
He and Mcenroe actually had some interesting touch battles.
