Puncher

Medium-low

When compared with her rivals she takes a bigger edge with her backhand than with her forehand (winning 10% fewer points than them on that side). Punchers alos run around their backhand to hit forehands much more than her.

Tempo Player

High

Garbine Muguruza is a dominant Tempo player. Playing close to her baseline and taking the ball on the rise she constantly generates pace on both sides. When compared with her rivals she makes on average more points than them with the return and the backhand and this is the trademark of the Tempo players.

Retriever

Medium
