Interesting draw against a former top 15 player.

Let's see how she does! She did well in WTA Luxembourg qualifying last year where she took a set from Putintseva.

Re: Belinda Bencic-Hingis Cheering Thread

Belinda won the first set
But Bovina is 6-5 and serves for the second set.

Re: Belinda Bencic-Hingis Cheering Thread

Bad thing then. So she choked the second set away.

Re: Belinda Bencic-Hingis Cheering Thread

She beat Bovina 6-3 5-7 6-4! Unbelievable result against a former WTA #14! 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.

Re: Belinda Bencic-Hingis Cheering Thread

Amazing result
Is it GM worthy?

Re: Belinda Bencic-Hingis Cheering Thread

I made a GM thread . Bovina is former Top 20, even if she kind of sucks now I almost think it's better that Belinda was able to win this after all the choking, rather than a comfortable 6-3 6-3 win. She's definitely a strong competitor.

She plays (5)Lesia Tsurenko next!

Re: Belinda Bencic-Hingis Cheering Thread

Good She definitely deserves a GM thread.
And yeah, the choking thing is not that bad when you eventually capitalize the lead
Tsurenko is clearly better then Bovina :usnure:

Of course I was there, but I prefered to watch other Slovak girls (Kristína Kučová and Lenka Wienerová).

Well, I came to this match when it was 4-0 for Belinda in 3rd set. As I came, she lost this lead but her father/coach was supporting her all the time. She seemed to be little nervous (and started making mistakes) but at the end she found inner strength and played some amazing shots that secured her victory.

This girl has really a lot of talent, she just needs more experience but I am sure she will be a great star in few years (let's hope everything will be ok with her health!).
