Aliaksandra Sasnovich's Game Style

Server

Low

Aliaksandra Sasnovich cannot be regarded as a Server at all. She goes for a percentage first serve (66% of first serve in) and her ratio of aces/service winners is below the WTA average (13%). Besides her ratio of double faults is above average (17%). If she gets an edge against her rivals on average by making fewer double faults than them, this is only because of her high first serve percentage.

Puncher

Medium-high

From the back of the court, Aliaksandra Sasnovich is more a Tempo player than a Puncher. She attacks really well with her flat forehand but her ratio of unforced errors is far above the WTA average. This is what often happens to Tempo players with their forehand. However, her backhand and her return are her main strengths like most of the Tempo players.

Tempo Player

High

From the back of the court, Aliaksandra is a dominating Tempo player. When compared with her rivals, she makes on average more winners / forcing errors with her backhand, her forehand but also her return. Playing close to her baseline with flat shots, she likes to generate her own pace and dictate the rallies.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Aliksandra Sasnovich has an Offensive side to her game. This is part of her game style to often follow her forehand or backhand to the net. However, this is with the 1-2 punch approach right after her serve that she is the best.

Retriever

Medium

Aliaksandra Sasnovich cannot be regarded as a Retriever but despite her dominating tempo game style she agrees to extend the rallies when needed. As a result, she plays more rallies over 5 shots than the WTA average. However, her percentage of points won in these medium & long rallies are below average (48,5%).
