Daria Gavrilova's Game Style

Server

Medium

Despite her size Daria Gavrilova gets a ratio of aces/service winners in the average and is only slightly dominated by her rivals with this shot. However, she can't really be regarded as a Server.

Puncher

High

Daria Gavrilova is a dominant Puncher. 22% of her total points are won with the forehand and this result is above the average of the WTA players. This is when she runs around her backhand that she is the most dangerous with that shot. Otherwise she often uses effectively the forehand approach.

Tempo Player

Medium-low

Even though Daria Gavrilova plays the backhand flat and close to the baseline, her results on that side are below average. Her goal is much more to play with her forehand as a Puncher than with the backhand as a Tempo player.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

For a WTA player, Daria Gavrilova comes in more than average. 13% of her total points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and her favorite ways to move forward is the 1-2 punch or the baseline approach.

Retriever

Medium-high

50% of Daria Gavrilova's points are won by the errors of her rivals and this result is just above average. Besides being an excellent Puncher, she can also extend the baseline rallies and gets points by her rivals' mistakes.
