Brussels Q1: (WC)Belinda Bencic df. Elena Bovina 6-3 5-7 6-4

First WTA win for Belinda in her second ever WTA event. She's only 15 years old.

A bit of a choke after leading 6-3 5-2* and four match points at *5-3 in the second set, and was also up *4-0 in the third before it went back to *4-4, but she got the job done.

Bovina needs to let it go now.

Funny thing is that both girl's birthdays are on 10th of march
Belinda turned 15, Elena turned 29
Bovina is #238 WTA right now and has a career high of #14. So it's an important win for young Belinda

Pretty much Although Bencic is tearing up the junior circuit so she's no slouch

Great win for Belinda, but its a shame that Bovina has derailed. She really needs to move on. Belinda's good, but Elena should have won. this is a really easy Premier qualies draw!!! Hopefully she can get a few games from lesia

Or stick to doubles where she's ranked inside the top-100.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan

Sam Smith on Hlavackova

Re: Brussels Q1: (WC)Belinda Bencic df. Elena Bovina 6-3 5-7 6-4

Elena is so done... she should really stop playing singles

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

One question, Melanie Molitor is listed alongside with her father as coach...is she travelling round to the tournaments with her?

Guessing she is with Octagon based on the wildcard
