Jennifer Brady's Game Style

Server

High

Jennifer Brady can count on a very effective Serve. When compared with her rivals she takes an edge with this shot making 20% more aces/service winners and when her first serve is in, 32% of the time it is unreturned (above the average of the WTA). Although she goes for a risky first serve with a low first serve percentage (53%) she still manages to get a second serve won points in the average (46%).

Puncher

High

Jennifer Brady is a dominant Puncher. From the back of the court, she is very aggressive with her topspin forehand and often runs around her backhand to hit powerful forehands. Her backhand is also played in a Punching way with topspin which is not common for a backhand. Usually, backhands are played flatter in a Tempo way.

Tempo Player

Medium-low

Jennifer Brady is more a Puncher than a Tempo player. The backhand & forehand are more played in a Punching way (topspin, big take back, loading position) than flat close to her baseline.

Offensive Player

Medium

When she has a chance, Jennifer Brady often follows her forehand but also her backhand to the net. Thanks to her excellent serve, she is very effective with the 1-2 punch winning 80% of her points.

Retriever

Medium-low

Jennifer Brady cannot be regarded as a Retriever but she still wins 47% of her points by the errors of her rivals (in the average). Her topspin strokes can also wear her rivals down even though her goal is more to shorten up the points.
