Re: Welcome to BEL AIR - Belinda Benčič Cheering Thread

Great fighting spirit for Belinda
I don't know why I was so sure in the beginning that Belinda would beat Townsend with ease I heavily underestimated the American.
I also underestimated Belinda's chances to win the title, because I didn't expect all of Siniakova, Kontaveit and Sorribes Tormo to lose prematurely. Now, with this final four, Belinda looks to me like the favorite to win the title, given Ana's state.

By the way, Bleeth has to be the most pessimist tennis fan I've ever seen

IKR
I think he is saying Ana will constantly lose to avoid a jinx

Anyway, very well done Belinda
She has proved much to me
Even though Taylor isn't great on Clay, I thought she would just pull it out, but obviously Belinda has much mental strength
A great re-match with Chirico and I really hope she can win

It's the fatigue factor m8, 15 matches in last 13 days (it will be 17 in 14 after today even if she wins and most of them were a struggle) after not playing for more than 2 months 'cause of the injury (which is still not 100% gone). Even her father said yesterday that she was barely moving on the court .

And there's no jinxing Ching, i even have money on Lottner today (+4 handicap)

The semi started really badly for Belinda, but then she got herself into the match, after being 2-5. It's 5-5 now.

Re: Welcome to BEL AIR - Belinda Benčič Cheering Thread

7-5 in the first set
5 games in a row
And I think Chirico had 40-0 at 5-5.

Re: Welcome to BEL AIR - Belinda Benčič Cheering Thread

Yes, this girl is such a fighter!
She was down *2-5 30-40, *4-5 0-30, 5-5* 40-0 and fought back every time in those games to finally win the set 7-5
