Server.png

Server

Low

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

Medium

The way Daria Kasatkina Retrieves is with Punch. It means that her main weapon from the back of the court is her forehand. She uses that shot to wear her rivals down but also to attack, especially with the forehand inside out & inside in. In total, 19% of her points are won with her topspin forehand and this result stands in the average.

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

Medium-low

Daria Kasatkina is more a Retriever or a Puncher than a Tempo player. However, she is comfortable taking the ball on the rise close to her baseline with her backhand when she has to. Her counterpunching skills on that side are also good.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

Medium-low

Daria Kasatkina cannot be regarded as an Offensive player because she usualy prefers to exend the baseline rallies than to come in. In total 9% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is just below average.

Retriever.png

Retriever

Very high

Daria Kasatkina is a dominant Retriever. In total, 58% of her points are won by the errors of her rivals and this result is far above the general average of the WTA players. She makes on average fewer errors than her opponents with every possible shots: serve, return, forehand, backhand & volley.
