Kirsten Flipkens is one of the most (if not the most) Offensive player on the WTA tour. 27% of her total points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is far above the general average. She varies well all kind of net approach: serve & volley, 1-2 punch, baseline approach & chip & charge.

Offensive / Very high

Kirsten Flipkens is more an Offensive/Puncher than a Puncher. It means that she is really effective when she uses the forehand approach. On the forehand side she is also excellent with the drop shot, the touch and the pass.

Puncher / Medium

Even though Kirsten Flipkens is more an Offensive player than a Retriever, she can put the balls back in play, especially on the backhand side where she uses the slice a lot.

Retriever - Medium-low

Kirsten Flipkens can also count on an effective Serve. When compared with her rivals she makes on average 30% more aces/service winners than them. Her ratio of first serve unreturned is also above average (27%). 

Server / High

Kirsten Flipkens cannot be regarded as a Tempo player. She is effective when she takes the forehand on the rise but her backhand results are far below average. Tempo players hit strong on both side and possess effective backhands.

Tempo / Medium-low
