Timea Bacsinszky's Game Style

Server

Medium-low

Timea Bacsinszky cannot be qualified as a Server because her ratio of aces/servie winners on first serve is below average (13%). Most of the time her matches are won from the back of the court and not with that shot.

Puncher

Low

Timea Bacsinszky cannot be regarded as a Puncher at all. The quality of her topspin forehand is far below average and she makes on average almost 2 times fewer points on that side than her rivals without taking an edge by making fewer errors.

Tempo Player

Medium

Besides being a Retriever Timea Bacsinszky also possess one of the best (if not the best) backhand on tour. Most of the time, this shot is played flat in Tempo close to her baseline. On that side, she has the double advantage to make 2 times more points but also 15% fewer errors than her rivals on average.

Offensive Player

Medium

As a clever player, Timea Bacsinszky senses perfectly when she has to come in to get an edge (Offensive). Only 10% of her points are won at the net (in the average) but she wins 77% of the points when moveing forward. However, the quality of her approaches are better than the one of her volleys (38% of volley errors).

Retriever

High

Timea Bacsinszky is a dominant Retriever and as a consequence a true fighter. In total, 53% of her points are won by the errors of her rivals and this result is above the general average of the WTA players. 43% of her rallies are played over 5 shots and this is also above average.
