Re: Belinda Bencic is back

Great packed draw for an ITF!

Hopefully she can win a few matches but, more importantly, let's hope she hasn't rushed her comeback yet again. It could be very costly, like Del Potro's story should teach.

He probably read on google search or trip advisor that Istanbul is less expensive than Singapore.
Cool story bro.

Re: Belinda Bencic is back

That's great news. Hope she can have a successful comeback like Stephens did. She really has some potential and the WTA really could be well with another 97 youngster playing well.

Re: Belinda Bencic is back

Hopefully BB is now free from all sorts of injuries, and she should make a reasonable schedule for her comeback.
For instance no more doubles matches in the same tournament.

Re: Belinda Bencic is back

Bencic's part of the draw is extremely packed with Qs and SRs

Irina KHROMACHEVA (RUS) [5] - Vitalia DIATCHENKO (RUS) (SR)
Belinda BENCIC (SUI) - Qualifier
Ysaline BONAVENTURE (BEL) (SR) - Qualifier
Qualifier - Anna BLINKOVA (RUS) [4]

Only Blinkova might be a threat to her if she's fit. Diatchenko is useless nowadays, an ITF25 material, Khromacheva is truly decent only on red clay.

I wish every player was that useless as Vitalia is this season. Last four tournaments: four SFs or better, two titles, almost came back to Top 200.
