Sara Sorribes Tormo's Game Style

Server

Very low

Sara Sorribes Tormo is nothing but a Server. This is by far the shot with which she struggles the most. Her ratio of aces/service winners is very low (5%) and the one of double faults very high (29%).

Puncher

Low

Sara Sorribes Tormo Retrieves with Punch which means that she tries to play as as many forehands as possible and she plays that shot with topspin. However, her ratio of points with the forehand is below average and she does not represent the Punchers. The Punchers are much more aggressive than her with their forehusually making more points & errors than their rivals.

Tempo Player

Very low

Sara Sorribes Tormo cannot be regarded as a Tempo player at all. The only time she has to play with pace close to her baseline is when she has to counterpunch on the backhand side. Besides, she often prefers to play the backhand slice in that position.

Offensive Player

Medium-high

Sara Sorribes Tormo developed an Offensive side to her game to counterbalance her lack of forehand & backhand points. In total, 12% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result stands above average. Her favorite way to come in is the baseline approach. After Retrieving a couple of balls, she often moves forward to surprise her rivals and be creative.

Retriever

Very high

Sara Sorribes Tormo is one of the most defensive player on the WTA tour and as a result a dominant Retriever. In total, 70% of her points are won by the errors of her rivals and this result is far above the general average of the WTA players. Her main game plan is to bring her opponents into a physical match and wear them down. As a complete Retriever, she is also very good with the touch balls or the pass.
