Cori Gauff's Game Style

Server

Coco Gauff cannot be regarded as a Server because the quality of her second serve is for the moment far below average. Her ratio of double faults is one of the highest on the WTA tour (25%). However, on her first serve she gets results just above average.

Puncher

Coco Gauff's game style is between a Puncher and a Tempo Player. She is better with her backhand than her forehand (Tempo) but she plays these shots with topspin (Punch). Her court position is also between a Tempo Player (rather close to the baseline) and a Puncher (a bit further).

Tempo Player

Offensive Player

Coco Gauff posses an Offensive side to her game. In total, 14% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this number is above the WTA average. Her favourite ways to come to the net are the 1-2 punch and the baseline approach.

Retriever

Coco Gauff is not only a Puncher or Tempo Player but also a Retriever. 52% of her points are won by the errors of her opponents and this number stands above average. She also plays more rallies over 5 shots than average and is effective this way.
