Even though Alison Riske cannot be regarded 100% as an Offensive player she is still much more Offensive than the rest of the WTA players. In total, 22% of her points are won at the net and when compared with her rivals this is with the volley that she takes her biggest edge. Her favorite ways to come in are the 1-2 punch approach right after her serve or the baseline approach. 

Offensive / High

Even though Alison Riske is more a Tempo player than a Retriever she still wins 47% of her points by the errors of her rivals (in the average). She does not mind about extending the exchanges and 17% of her rallies are over 8 shots (above average). 

Retriever / Medium

When compared with her rivals, Alison Riske is dominated with her Serve. She makes on average 30% fewer aces/service winners than her opponents and her ratio of first serve unreturned is below average (13%). 

Server / Medium-low

From the back of the court Alison Riske is dominant Tempo player. Playing close to her baseline she takes the ball on the rise and constantly generates pace on both sides. As most of the Tempo players, the quality of her return is also good. 

Tempo / High

Alison Riske is much more a Tempo player than a Puncher. Except for her forehand down the line, her ratio of points with that shot is below the average of the WTA players. She prefers the pace and can be struggling when she has to accelerate slower balls on the forehand side.
