Madison Keys can be regarded as a dominant Server. This is with her Serve that she takes her biggest edge on average against her rivals making on average 40% more points than them with this shot. When that first serve is in 40% of the time it is unreturned and this result is far above the average of the WTA players. 

Server / High

Madison Keys is more a Puncher than a Tempo player because she does not take the ball on the rise close to her baseline. Like the Tempo players, she is very aggressive with her return & backhand but she plays these shots more in a Punching way (big take back, loading position). 

Tempo / Medium-low

Winning only 34% of her points by the errors of her rivals, Madison Keys is nothing but a Retriever. Her game style is to hit strong all the time and she does not count on her rivals errors to win a match.

Retriever / Very low

From the back of the court, Madison Keys is a risky Puncher. She Punches on both side and makes on average 50% more points with the forehand & backhand than her rivals. However, she also makes more errors with these shots, especially on the backhand side. 

Puncher / High

Madison Keys cannot be regarded as an Offensive player because she usualy prefers to hit strong from the baseline than to come in. In total 7% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is below average. 

Offensive / Low
