Re: She's a BOMB - Belinda Benčič Cheering Thread

It's over and Belinda is in the QF! A 7-6 (8-6) 6-3 over 9th seed Jelena Jankovic and now she will face Peng Shuai on Tuesday for a spot in the U.S. Open semifinals. I wasn't at the match, but I taped the on-court interview with my camera. Right now, I think I could cry. That's how amazing this is. I am going to try to get tickets for Tuesday.

Re: She's a BOMB - Belinda Benčič Cheering Thread

Very exciting She is very mentally and tactically strong, the opposite of Jelena She is the first player in a long time that I have seen who is so young yet has the mental and tactical fortitude to beat players who are better than her

Belinda!

She is the the youngest USO quarterfinalist since Martina Hingis in 1997. (Vaidisova overall in 2006)

What a chance to make a Grand Slam semifinal!

She will struggle with ShuShu Karlovic Peng, who has beaten very many players all who would have beaten Jelena

Kontaveit would've beaten JJ and Kerber too, right?

Probably Kerber but that's a different issue
You can be in denial if you want, but how can you compare Zheng, Radwanska, Vinci and Safarova to Wickmayer, Nara, Kerber and Jankovic Just because I said that Peng will be tough doesn't mean you have to be an idiotic douche and mention Nettu-GOAT Go back to the Shire, where you obviously own a surfboard shop

Keep it up, starlet. I think right now, Belinda could take out pretty much anyone.

Let's not get crazy here.

It's been a nice tournament, but I do think Shuai will present match-up problems her previous opponents haven't. Could very well be a fairly quick straight sets loss..

Finally some sense
If she beats Peng, I think that she has a shot against Caro if she can play tactically completely differently to last time
