Tempo

Very high

Being so agressive with every possible shot, Aryna Sabalenka represents well the Tempo player. Standing close to the baseline, she plays with pace and hits very strong on both side. She goes for big with a high ratio of forehand/backhand points & errors. The very agressive return is also part of the Tempo player's game style.  

Offensive

High

For a WTA player, Aryna Sabalenka is really Offensive. It's part of her game style to use the forehand & backhand approach during the baseline rallies. In total 18% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this is far above average. 

Server

High

Aryna Sabalenka can count on an effective first serve. She makes on average 70% more aces/service winners than her rivals and this contributes strongly to her victories. 

Puncher

Medium

Aryna Sabalenka is more a Tempo player than a Puncher. The difference between these two categories is her position close to the baseline and the fact that she wins as many points with the forehand as with the backhand. A Puncher would win much more points with the forehand than the backhand.  

Retriever

Very low

Aryna Sabalenka is nothing but a Retriever. Only 34% of her points are won by the errors of her rivals which stands far below the average of the WTA players. She always goes for big and is not afraid to multiply the points & errors.
