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

Nürnberg:

(4)Svitolina v Melzer
Q/LL v Q/LL
Bencic v Barthel
Cepelova v (8)Beck

Barthel has been in a massive slump, but has recently changed coaches and has shown some signs of improvement in the last few weeks, so it's really difficult to say who she'll actually face there, could be anything from "real No.2"-Barthel to "A 6 year old could bagel her"-Barthel.

Barthel seems to be picking up form lately. Wouldn't be surprised with a win or loss.

I think Belinda is gonna make her play too many balls.

It's a pity that they didn't choose to play doubles together here...

Good match from both Belinda and Mona at the moment, really annoying that one of them has to lose in the first round here, bad draw.

Mama Rittner probably decides who Toni plays doubles with.

Edit: Belinda lost the first set. Match was on a knife's edge until *4-5 in the tiebreak when Belinda sent a backhand cross minimally wide and then Mona fired a brutal forehand return winner off of a first serve.

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

Barthel in the 1R of an Int is tough, this Int as a whole is one of the stronger on tour actually.

Anyways, it's been a solid clay season leading up to RG. Played a good amount of matches. Hopefully with a solid draw she can win a round or two there.

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

Barthel decided to play her best match in quite some time and still Belinda was close. Unlucky.

Tennis Tipping: (S) ITF Toronto | (D) Dalian (w/ Nottheone), ITF Bendigo (w/ Randy)
Suicide: Strasbourg, Tashkent, Hong Kong

Mona served really well on those BP, especially in the 2nd game of the 2nd set. Belinda's performance would have been enough for many other opponents, just really bad luck with the draw.
