Radwańska is an all-court player (as shown with her results on different surfaces. She won three titles in 2008 on hard, clay, and grass courts). She hits consistently on both the forehand and the backhand sides. Her favorite shot is her forehand, particularly the inside-out forehand which is her most powerful shot

She is also very accurate with the drop shot and lob. She lacks much of the "power plays" of other players like Maria Sharapova or the Williams sisters, thus she relies on tactical accuracy and patience on constructing the point before hitting a winner.

In addition, Radwańska is known for her gamesmanship. Because of this playing style, several commentators have compared her to Martina Hingis, saying that she is "a natural mover who understands the geometry of the court". However, several commentators have also said that Radwańska lacks the serving power and offensive capabilities to become a top 3 player.
