Ekaternina Alexandrova's Game Style

Server

High

When compared with her rivals, Ekaterina Alexandrova takes her biggest edge with the Serve. She makes on average 50% more aces/service winners than her opponents and when her first serve is in, 30% of the time it is unreturned. However, for the moment the quality of her first serve is better than the one of her second serve. Her first serve won points is above average (70%) and her second serve won points is below average (43%).

Puncher

Medium

Because of the way she hits the ball (flat) and her court position close to the baseline, Ekaterina Alexandrova is more a Tempo player than a Puncher. She can attack slower balls with the forehand but her ratio of unforced errors is very high.

Tempo Player

High

Ekaterina Alexandrova is a dominant Tempo Player who hits strong on both sides. Taking the ball on the rise close to her baseline, she makes on average more points with the return, the forehand & the backhand than her opponents. As the majority of the Tempo players, she gets better results with the backhand than with the forehand.

Offensive Player

Low

Ekaterina Alexandrova cannot be regarded as an Offensive player. In total, only 4% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is below the general average of the WTA players. She prefers to hit strong from the back of the court than to come in.

Retriever

Low

Only 41% of Ekaterina Alexandrova's points are won by the errors of her rivals and this result is below average. She is so aggressive with her serve and her baseline strokes that she does not count on her opponents' errors to win a match.
