Marketa Vondrousova's Game Style

Server

Medium-low

Marketa Vondrousova cannot be regarded as a Server because her ratio of first serve unreturned is below average (17%) but when compared with her rivals, she makes on average the same ratio of aces/service winners than them. She counterbalances her deficit of free points with her serve with a defensive return position decreasing her rivals' first serve effectiveness.

Puncher

Medium

The way Marketa Vondrousova Retrieves is with Punch. It means that her main weapon from the back of the court is her topspin forehand. Besides wearing her rivals down with that shot she can also attack when she has a chance. However, her global ratio of points won with the forehand is below average (15%). It means that her forehand is (for the moment) more used to Retrieve than to take risks.

Tempo Player

Medium-low

Marketa Vondrousova is more a Retriever or a Puncher than a Tempo player. However, she is comfortable taking the ball on the rise close to her baseline with her backhand when she has to. Her counterpunching skills on that side are also good.

Offensive Player

Low

Marketa Vondrousova cannot be regarded as an Offensive player at all. In total only 6% of her points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this result is far below average. Most of the time, she prefers to extend the baseline rallies than to come in.

Retriever

Very high

Marketa Vondrousova is a dominant Retriever. In total, 56% of her points are won by the errors of her rivals and this result is far above the general average of the WTA players. She uses her lefty forehand to wear her rivals down on their backhand but also to force them into taking more risks (and miss more) with their forehand.
