Server

Medium-low

Magda Linette's Serve is just below the WTA average. She is slightly dominated by her opponents when we compare the ratio of aces/service winners. However, we cannot say that her Serve is a weakness.

Puncher

Medium

From the back of the court, Magda Linette is a mix a a Puncher, a Tempo Player and a Retriever. It means that she can hit winners/forcing errors with her forehand or backhand but can also extend the rallies and be effective this way.

Medium

Madga Linette also developped an Offensive side to her game. She wins 71% of the points when she comes in and the net game represents 14% of her total points won. However, she is better with her forehand or backhand approach than with her volley.

Medium

50% of Magda Linette's points are won by the errors of her opponents and this number stands in the average of the WTA players. As said previously, she can be a Puncher, a Tempo Player or a Retriever wearing down her rivals.
