Belinda Bencic's Game Style

Server

Medium

Belinda Bencic cannot be regarded as a Server but she can still get free points with her Serve. 21% of her first serves in are unreturned and this result stands in the average. Nonetheless, when compared with her rivals she makes on average 25% fewer aces/service winners than them.

Puncher

Medium-low

Belinda Bencic is much more a Tempo player taking the ball on the rise close to her baseline than a Puncher dominating the rallies with its topspin forehand. When compared with her rivals she makes on average 20% fewer points with her forehand.

Tempo Player

High

Belinda Bencic is a dominant Tempo player. Playing close to her baseline and constantly taking the ball on the rise she generates pace on both sides. However, this is on the backhand side that she really dominates her rivals making on average more points but also fewer errors than them.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Belinda Bencic is not only a Tempo player she also possesses an Offensive side. In total, 12% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this results stands just above the average of the WTA players. Her game plan is to play close to her baseline and after a good attack she steps in and plays topspin volleys. She is really effective doing so winning 73% of her points when coming in.

Retriever

Medium

Playing on average fewer rallies over 5 shots than average Belinda Bencic is more a Tempo / Offensive player than a Retriever. However, she can still put the balls back in play when she has to and in total 47% of her points are won by the errors of her rivals (in the average).
