Laura Siegemund's Game Style

Server.png

Server

Low

Laura Siegemund cannot be regarded as a Server at all. When compared with her rivals, she makes on average fewer aces/service winners and more double faults than them. The diffrence between her first & second serve are small and that leads her to a high first serve percentage (73%) and a high ratio of double faults (21%).

Puncher 2.png

Puncher

Medium-high

Laura Siegemund is more a Tempo player than a Puncher. The problem with her forehand is not her ratio of points which is high but her ratio of errors which is 30% higher than the one of her rivals. Punchers are usually more consistent on that shot than her.

Tempo.png

Tempo Player

High

From the back of the court Laura Siegemund is a dominant Tempo player. Playing close to her baseline she takes the ball on the rise and takes risks on both sides. As most of the Tempo players, she gets better results with her backhand and return than with her forehand.

Offensive.png

Offensive Player

High

Even though Laura Siegemund cannot be regarded 100% as an Offensive player she is still much more Offensive than the rest of the WTA players. In total, 25% of her points are won at the net and when compared with her rivals she takes her second biggest edge with the volley. Her favorite ways to come in are the 1-2 punch approach right after her serve or the baseline approach but she can also play sometimes the chip & charge.

Retriever.png

Retriever

Low

Winning only 40% of her points by the errors of her rivals, Laura Siegemund is not a Retriever. She is far too aggressive and Offensive to count on her opponents' errors to win a match.
