Donna Vekic's Game Style

Server

Medium-high

When compared with her rivals, Donna Vekic makes on average 15% more aces/service winners than them. When her first serve is in, 31% of the time it is unreturned and this result stands above the general average of the WTA players.

Puncher

Medium

Donna Vekic is more a Tempo player taking the ball on the rise close to her baseline than a Puncher dominating the rallies with its topspin forehand. However, as said previously, her forehand is as effective as her backhand. It means that she can also accelerate slower balls with her forehand when she has to.

Tempo Player

High

Donna Vekic is a dominant Tempo player. Playing close to her baseline she constantly generates pace on her forehand & backhand. Her stats results are as good with the forehand as with the backhand and in addition to that she possesses an effective return.

Offensive Player

Low

Winning only 6% of her points at the net (with or without a volley to play), Donna Vekic cannot be regarded as an Offensive player at all. Most of the time she prefers to extend the baseline rallies than to come in.

Retriever

Medium

Donna Vekic generates pace on both side until she or her rivals make the points or the errors. Because of that 43% of her points are won by the errors of her rivals and this result is in the average.
