Sloane Stephens' game style is between a Retriever and a Puncher. Her main strengths is her forehand that she can use to Retrieve or to Punch. 52% of her points are won by the errors of her rivals and this result is above the general average of the WTA. 

Retriever / High

Sloane Stephens is more a Puncher or a Retriever than a Tempo player. However, she is comfortable taking the ball on the rise close to her baseline with her backhand when she has to. Her counterpunching skills on that side are also excellent.

Tempo / Medium-low

When compared with her rivals, Sloane Stephens is the most dominated with her Serve. She makes on average 40% less aces/service winners than them and her ratio of first serve unreturned is below average (13%). 

Server / Low

Sloane Stephens does not only Retriever with her forehand she also attacks (Puncher). She makes on average 20% more points with this shot than her rivals and can be dangerous at any moment in the rallies and in any direction. 

Puncher / High

Sloane Stephens cannot be regarded as an Offensive player because she usualy prefers to exend the baseline rallies than to come in. In total 8% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is below average.
