Julia Goerges' Game Style

Server

High

Julia Goerges can be regarded as a dominant Server. This is with her Serve that she takes her biggest edge on average against her rivals making on average 20% more points than them with this shot. When that first serve is in 37% of the time it is unreturned and this result is above the average of the WTA players.

Puncher

High

From the back of the court, Julia Goerges is a risky Puncher. She makes on average almost 2 times more points with the forehand her rivals. However, she takes that edge on her first forehand after the serve or the return. When the rallies extend 5 shots she does not get an edge against her opponents with the forehand and this is due to a very high ratio of errors.

Tempo Player

Medium

Even though Julia Goerges is more a Puncher than a Tempo player she still takes risks with her backhand. This shot is played rather flat and close to her baseline as a Tempo player. However, her results with that shot are below average.

Offensive Player

Medium

Being so aggressive with her forehand, Julia Goerges also uses that shot to come in. In total, 13% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is just above average. Her favorite way to move forward is the 1-2 punch right after her serve where she wins 81% of the points.

Retriever

Very low

Winning only 31% of her points by the errors of her rivals, Julia Goerges is nothing but a Retriever. Her game style is to hit strong all the time and she does not count on her rivals errors to win a match.
