Heather Watson can be regarded as a dominant Retriever. When compared with her rivals she makes on average fewer points with the return, the forehand, the backhand and the volley. In total, 49% of her points are won by the errors of her opponents and this result is above the general average of the WTA players. 

Retriever / Medium-high

From the back of the court, Heather Watson is more a Tempo player than a Puncher. Playing close to her baseline with pace, her best shot in comparison with her rivals is her backhand. She makes on average 40% more points than her opponents with that shot. 

Tempo / Medium

Winning only 6% of her points at the net Heather Watsonis not an Offensive player at all. She usually prefers to extend the baseline rallies than to come in.

Offensive / Medium-low

Heather Watson is a Retriever with an effective Serve. She goes for big on her first serve (with a low first serve percentage) but when that first serve is in, 29% of the time it is unreturned (above average). However, when the rallies start on her service games, she wins only 48% of the points so we can say that her Serve is more effective than her baseline game. 

Server / Medium-high

Heather Watson cannot be regarded as a Puncher. When compared with her rivals, she makes on average 25% fewer points with her topspin forehand than them. She can be struggling when she has to accelerate slower balls on that side.
