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).
