Catherine Bellis' Game Style

Server.png

Server

Catherine Bellis cannot be regarded as a Server. When compared with her opponents, she makes on average 2 times fewer aces/service winners. When that first serve lands in, only 11% of the time it is unreturned and this number is below the WTA average.

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

Catherine Bellis cannot be categorized as a Puncher because of the way she plays. Punchers play with more much topspin than her and their placement from the baseline is a bit further to let the ball go down.

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

Catherine Bellis is a dominant Retriever with the Tempo as a second category. It means that she takes the ball on the rise close to her baseline with pace. However, the real Tempo Players make more winners/forcing errors than her with their backhand but also return.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Catherine Bellis cannot be regarded as an Offensive Player because only 8% of her total points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play). Nonetheless, when she comes to the net she is very effective winning 74% of her points.

Retriever.png

Retriever

Catherine Bellis is a dominant Retriever and in her case we can say a Counterpuncher. In total, 58% of her points are won by the errors of her opponents and this number is far above the WTA average.
