Anastasia Potapova's game style is between a Tempo player & a Puncher. From the Tempo side, she has the court position close to her baseline, the backhand and the return attack. She makes on average 30% more points than her rivals with these two shots. 

Tempo / High

Anastasia Potapova possesses a Serve in the average. She often takes a small edge making more aces/service winners than her rivals but she also often loses that edge making more double faults.

Server / Medium

Anastasia Potapova cannot be regarded as an Offensive player. In total, only 4% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is far below the WTA average. However, when she comes in she wins the majority of her points (81%).  

Offensive / Low

Anastasia Potapova's game style is between a Tempo player & a Puncher & a Tempo player. From the Puncher side, she has the forehand attack. Even though she makes on average the same ratio of points with her forehand than her rivals she constantly put pressure with that shot. However, unlike the Punchers she does not run around her backhand to hit forheands, she prefers to use her Tempo backhand. 

Puncher / Medium-high

Although Anastasia Potapova is more a Tempo player or a Puncher, 46% of her points are still won by the errors of her rivals (in the average). It means that she plays strong on both sides until she or her rivals make a point or an error.
