Puncher

High

Carla Suarez Navarro is a dominant Puncher. This is with the topspin forehand that she dominates the most her rivals making on average 50% more points than them with this shot. The single-handed backhand is often the trademark of the Puncher but Carla Suarez Navarro uses more this shot to Retrieve than to Punch. 

Retriever

High

Winning 54% of her points by the errors of the rivals (above the average of the WTA players), Carla Suarez Navarro is not only a Puncher but also a Retriever. Her game style is between these two categories and she is capable to attack but also to wear her rivals down the the topspin forehand & backhand.

Offensive

Medium

Carla Suarez Navarro moves forward from time to time but she can't be regarded as an Offensive player. However, she is very effective with the 1-2 Punch approach right after her serve. 

Tempo

Low

Playing with topspin Carla Suarez Navarro is much more a Puncher than a Tempo player. She doesn't take the ball on the rise close to the baseline but wait a bit longer on her stance to accelerate the ball with topspin. Usually, the Tempo players don't have a single-handed backhand. 

Server

Low

Carla Suarez Navarro doesn't count on her serve to win a match. Winning only 8% of her points with aces/service winners she isn't a Server at all.
