Astra Sharma's Game Style

Server

High

Astra Sharma can be regarded as a Server because when compared with her opponents the shot she takes her biggest edge is her Serve. When her first serve lands in 31% of the time it is an aces or a service winner.

Puncher

Very high

From the back of the court, Astra Sharma is a Puncher. She makes on average much more winners/forcing errors but also unforced errors with her forehand than her opponents. This is really on her first forehand after her serve that she is the most effective.

Tempo Player

Low

Astra Sharma is nothing but a Tempo player. The Tempo is missing in her game and this explains why she gets her worst results with her return and backhand. She lacks this capacity of taking the ball on the rise close to her baseline and being effective doing it.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Astra Sharma possesses an Offensive side to her game. In total, 14% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this number is above the WTA average. This is with the forehand approach that she is the most dangerous.

Retriever

Low

Taking so much risk with her serve, her forehand and at the net, Astra Sharma cannot be regarded as a Retriever at all.
