Naomi Osaka's Game Style

Server

Very high

Naomi Osaka can be regarded as a dominant Server. When compared with her rivals, she makes on average 70% more aces/service winners and 2.5 times fewer double faults than them. When her first serve is in, 39% of the time it is an ace or a service winner and this result stands far above the general average of the WTA players.

Puncher

Medium

Naomi Osaka is much more a Tempo player than a Puncher. However, the quality of her topspin forehand has been improving and now she can also attack slower balls on that side.

Tempo Player

High

From the back of the court, Naomi Osaka is a dominant Tempo player. She constantly hits her forehand & backhand with power and makes on average much more points than her rivals with the backhand, the forehand and the return. However, she also makes more errors with these shots.

Offensive Player

Low

Winning only 4% of her points at the net (with or without a volley to play), Naomi Osaka is nothing but an Offensive player at the moment. Most of the time, she prefers to hit strong from the back of the court than to come in.

Retriever

Low

Naomi Osaka is not a Retriever at all. She does not count on her rivals errors to win a match and only 39% of her points are won by the mistakes of her opponents (below average). Nonetheless, she has been improving in that area playing more cross shots than before and her results are excellents.
