Compare her Stats with the ones of the Other Russian Players here

Anna Blinkova is a dominant Tempo player. She plays close to her baseline, takes the ball on the rise and generates pace on both sides. Her backhand is by far her best shot making on average 30% more points but also 30% fewer errors than her rivals. The backhand is usually the trademark of the Tempo player. 

Tempo / Very high

Anna Blinkova possesses a Serve in the average of the WTA players. Even though she often takes a small edge making more aces/service winners than her rivals, she loses that edge making more double faults. 

Server / Medium

Anna Blinkova is more a Tempo player than a Retriever because only 40% of her points are won by the errors of her rivals (below average). Nonetheless, she plays more long rallies (over 8 shots) than average (18%).

Retriever / Medium

From the back of the court Anna Blinkova is not only a Tempo player but also a Puncher. It means that she does not only attack with her backhand (or return) but also with her forehand. However, her forehand results are not as good as the backhand ones mainly because of a very high ratio of unforced errors on that side. 

Puncher / Medium

Anna Blinkova cannot be regarded as a true Offensive player but she still wins 12% of her points at the net (just above average). When she has a chance she often follows her backhand or forehand to the net and she is really effective with the 1-2 punch right after her serve (76% of the points won).
