Andrea Petkovic's Game Style

Server

Medium-low

Andrea Petkovic cannot be regarded as a Server. She goes for a high first serve percentage (66%) with a low ratio of unreturned (15%) and as a direct consequence a low first serve won points (59%).

Puncher

Medium-high

Andrea Petkovic is more a Tempo player than a Puncher. However, she gets a bigger edge against her rivals with the quality of her forehand than the onw of her backhand. It means that besides plying with Tempo she can also accelerate balls effectively with her forehand (Puncher).

Tempo Player

High

Andrea Petkovic is a dominant Tempo player. Playing close to her baseline and taking the ball on the rise, she constantly generates pace on both sides. As most of the Tempo players, the quality of her return is also good.

Offensive Player

Medium-low

Andrea Petkovic cannot be qualified as an Offensive player. Only 9% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is just below average. Besides her percentage of points won at the net (63%) and her volley points/errors ratio are also below average.

Retriever

Medium-high

Even though Andrea Petkovic is more a Tempo player than a Retriever her ratio of points won by the errors of her rivals is still above average (52%). It means that her game style is to play with Tempo on both side until she makes a points or her opponent is forced to make a mistake.
