Tempo

Very high

Playing close to the baseline and generating pace on both side, Victoria Azarenka is a good example of a Tempo player. She can hurt her rivals with the backhand & forehand by making more points & less errors than them on average. Her return is also one of the best in the business.

Puncher

High

Usually, the Punchers are players with a better forehand than forehand but this is not Victoria Azarenka's case. However, her forehand is so effective that she can be also regarded as a Puncher too. 

Offensive

Medium-high

Winning 13% of the points at the net (with or without a volley to play), Victoria Azarenka is also a good Offensive Player. When she comes in, she wins 73% of the points which is above the average of the WTA players. 

Retriever

Medium-high

Victoria Azarenka is not only able to generate pace with the forehand & backhand, she can also absorb it with ease. Like that, she is a good Retriever too who can defend or counterpunch when she has to. In the end, she takes a big edge against her rivals by making less errors with the forehand & backhand than them. 

Server

Low

The only profile that doesn't represent Victoria Azarenka's game style is the Server. Opting for a percentage first serve, her ratio of aces/service winners is below the average of the WTA player and she is often dominated with that shot by her opponents.
