Tatjana Maria's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

Being passive from the back of the court Tatjana Maria can count on an effective Serve. She makes on average 2 times more aces/service winners than her opponents and the Serve is the shot she takes her biggest edge against them.

Puncher

Medium-low

The way Tatjana Maria Retrieves is with Punch and it means that her forehand is played with topspin. However, she cannot represent the Punchers because her ratio of points with the forehand is below average. She Retrieves more than she attacks on that side.

Tempo Player

Low

Having a single-handed backhand and a topspin forehand, Tatjana Maria cannot be regarded as a Tempo player. Unlike the Tempo players, her game is not to play powerful shots close to her baseline.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Lacking power from the back of the court Tatjana Maria also developed an Offensive side to her game. In total, 16% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is above average. This is with the 1-2 punch approach right after her serve and baseline approach that she is the most effective. At the net, she possesses a good hand missing only 30% of her volleys.

Retriever

High

Tatjana Maria is a dominant Retriever. In total, 55% of her points are won by the errors of her rivals and this result is above the average of the WTA players. She makes on average 30% fewer errors with the forehand and 10% with the backhand than her opponents.
