Venus Williams' Game Style

Server

High

Venus Williams can be regarded as a Server. When compared with her rivals, this is with the Serve that she takes her biggest edge making on average 40% more points than them with this shot. When her first Serve is in 31% of the time it is unreturned.

Puncher

Medium

From the back of the court, Venus Williams' game style is between a Tempo player and a Puncher. She takes on the ball on rise close to the baseline like a Tempo player but she is more aggressive with her forehand than her backhand like a Puncher. However, she is slightly dominated by her rivals with her forehand & backhand and has to make the difference with her Serve or at the net.

Tempo Player

Offensive Player

High

For a WTA player, Venus Williams is very Offensive. 14% of her total points are won at the net (with or without a volley to play) and this resutl is abver average. Her favorite ways to come in are the 1-2 punch right after the serve or the baseline approach.

Retriever

Low
