Alja Tomljanovic's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

Alja Tomljanovic can count on an effective Serve but when compared with her rivals she doesn't get a real edge with this shot. This is mainly because her first serve percentage is low (57%).

Puncher

Medium-low

Alja Tomljanovic isn't a Puncher because she doesn't run around the backhand to hit forehands and she makes on average less points than her rivals with the forehand. The way she plays close to the baseline with pace is much more like a Tempo player than a Puncher.

Tempo Player

High

Alja Tomljanovic is a dominant Tempo Player who hits strong on both sides. However, when compared with her rivals she makes more points than them with the backhand and the return but not with the forehand.

Offensive Player

Low

Winning only 6% of her points at the net (with or without a volley to play), Alja Tomljanovic can't be regarded as an Offensive player at all. She prefers to play with pace than to take her chance to the net.

Retriever

Medium

When the baseline rallies start, Alja Tomljanovic can Retrieve with pace. This allows her to get errors from her rivals (46%) and win more points than them in the rallies over 8 shots. However, she can't be regarded as a Retriever because she is too powerful.
