Kiki Bertens is a dominant Puncher. Unlike the majority of the women on the WTA tour she Punches on both sides. It means that she plays her backhand with more spin than the rest of the players. However, when compared with her rivals she takes an edge with the forehand by making 40% less errors than them. Usually Punchers get an edge by making more points. 

Puncher / Medium-high

Kiki Bergtens cannot be regarded as a Retriever but as we saw earlier she takes her biggest edge against her rivals by making on average 40% less errors with her forehand than them. When the rallies extends (over 5 shots) she is also very effective winning on average 54% of the points.

Retriever / Medium-high

As said previously, Kiki Bertens plays the Backhand in a Punching way and not especially in Tempo close to her baseline. However, she can take the ball on the rise when she has to but we can't say that this is her signature shot. 

Tempo / Low

When compared with her rivals, Kiki Bertens takes her second biggest edge with the Serve making on average 40% more aces/service winners than them. Her first serve unreturned is 26% and this result is above the general average of the WTA players..

Server / Medium-high

Kiki Bertens gets results at the net according to the general average of the WTA players. She knows when to come in to get an edge but cannot be regarded as an Offensive player.
