Serena Williams is simple the best woman Server of all time. When compared with her rivals she takes by far her biggest edge by making on average 2 times more aces/service winners than them. When her first serve is in 44% of the time it is unreturned. 

Server / Very high

Serena Williams is also comfortable at the net making on average 2 times more points with the volley than her rivals. She wins 70% of the points when she comes in and this is above the general average of the WTA players. 

Offensive / Medium

Winning only 36% of her points by the errors of her rivals (below average), Serena Williams is not a Retriever. Her game style is to serve big, to be aggressive from the baseline and she doesn't count on her opponents' errors to win a match.

Retriever - Low

From the back of the court, Serena Williams is a Tempo player. Playing close to her baseline, she generates pace on every ball. Her aggressive return is also the trademark of the Tempo players. 

Tempo / High

Even though Serena Williams is more a Tempo player than a Puncher, she can still accelerate slower balls with her forehand. However, Punchers run around their backhand much more than her and they also play with more topspin.
