Madison Keys' Game Style

Server

High

Madison Keys 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 40% more points than them with this shot. When that first serve is in 40% of the time it is unreturned and this result is far above the average of the WTA players.

Puncher

High

From the back of the court, Madison Keys is a risky Puncher. She Punches on both side and makes on average 50% more points with the forehand & backhand than her rivals. However, she also makes more errors with these shots, especially on the backhand side.

Tempo Player

Medium

Madison Keys is more a Puncher than a Tempo player because she does not take the ball on the rise close to her baseline. Like the Tempo players, she is very aggressive with her return & backhand but she plays these shots more in a Punching way (big take back, loading position).

Offensive Player

Low

Madison Keys cannot be regarded as an Offensive player because she usualy prefers to hit strong from the baseline than to come in. In total 7% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is below average.

Retriever

Very low

Winning only 34% of her points by the errors of her rivals, Madison Keys 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.
