Re: Belinda Benčič News/Articles/Interviews

With Ties to Hingis, Bencic Flashes Her Potential (The NY Times)

Getting to Know Belinda Bencic (WTA)

Belinda Bencic (Switzerland) (The Tennis Space)
The search for the “new Martina Hingis” is an ongoing one for tennis connoisseurs of a particularly nostalgic bent but 16-year-old Belinda Bencic, this year’s Roland Garros and Wimbledon junior champion, is a more intriguing proposition than most. For starters, she’s co-coached by Hingis’s mother Melanie Molitor: it’s as if the woman who moulded one of the most unique champions of the past 20 years is having another shot at the top. And Bencic’s ability to offset her lack of raw power by taking the ball ludicrously early, redirecting it with ease and manoeuvring her opponent around the court is sure to elicit déjà vu for fans of the first Swiss Miss. Strong performances in the autumn Asian swing saw her become the first of the 1997-born generation to make inroads on to the WTA Tour proper, scoring victories over Lauren Davis, Mandy Minella and Daria Gavrilova as well as pushing Petra Kvitova to a close 7-5, 6-4 loss in Tokyo. Bencic’s end-of-year perch inside the top 200 sees her perfectly placed to push even further upwards in 2014.

Belinda Bencic (Wimbledon)
Last year’s junior champion at the All England Club is on a similar upward trajectory to Konjuh. The newest 17-year-old Swiss miss regularly consults with her idol Martina Hingis’s mother and part-time coach Melanie Molitor and the similarities in her game show. Much like Hingis, Bencic – also of Slovak heritage – has a game built on consistency and court craft as opposed to bludgeoning the ball. As she surged past rising Haitian-American Victoria Duval to reach her first Grand Slam third round at this year’s Championships, Hingis was cheering her own from the stands. It was a different story days later when the pair faced off in the mixed doubles third round. Hingis would claim bragging rights in that match, but Bencic’s time will come.

Belinda Bencic: A-minus

The 17-year-old jumped 179 spots in the rankings to end at No. 32 in a season that saw her make her first Slam quarterfinal at the U.S. Open and her first WTA final in Tianjin. Watching her work her way through qualifying week after week in the first half of the season was impressive stuff. The hype is real.

What do you guys think - is this accurate? I think there's some truth to it. But time is on her side.

Nothing I haven't thought about myself. It's accurate.

Not much more to say, it's up to her to improve her game and win matches. Time will tell what type of player she ends up being.

Re: Belinda Benčič News/Articles/Interviews

Quote:
In addition to playing doubles, Hingis is also advising Belinda Bencic, the teenage Swiss, though her own tennis is the priority. "In doubles everything can turn around so quickly. It can go against you, but also in your favor, so you have to take it very seriously. You have to do what's best for you and focus on it. But I have been helping Belinda Bencic whenever I can. I warm her up, I practise with her, I go to see the matches. I give her as much time as I can. She trusts me completely. We have known each for 10 years and she believes in me. She has come very far and I'm very happy for her," said Hingis.

...

Inevitably, comparisons are made between Hingis and Bencic, who has been mentored by Hingis' mother, Melanie Monitor. But, as Hingis said, those comparisons aren't fair. "It's difficult to compare Belinda and me. It's a different generation and I was very young when I had my success. She has her own path, and she has to do everything herself. No one can do it for her. You can only be there for her and help her, but she's the one who is on the court hitting the ball.

"It's very difficult for young players, as there are even younger players coming up who want to beat you, and also those who are a year or two older who are still hungry. But if you're hungry and willing to fight for your spot there's always going to be room for improvement."

Re: Belinda Benčič News/Articles/Interviews

Top 15 teenagers to watch out for on the WTA, ATP tours in 2015

Quote:
With Madison Keys turning 20-years-old earlier this month, it's time to take a look at the current crop of youngsters on the ATP and WTA Tours. From the top teens of Nick Kyrgios and Belinda Bencic to the more under-the-radar youth toiling away in the lower echelons of the tours, here are the names to know for the 2015 season.

Top of the class

​Belinda Bencic

​Age: 18
Country: Switzerland
Current ranking: No. 37

When you catch Melanie Molitor's (Martina Hingis' mother) eye as a junior talent, the "tennis prodigy" label will follow you wherever you go. For the most part, Bencic has done well to manage the expectations that come from both being coached by Molitor early in her career and playing under the same flag as Roger Federer. Her rise over the last two years has been steady and workmanlike, culminating in her first Slam quarterfinal at the U.S. Open last fall. She was the youngest player to make the U.S. Open quarterfinals since—wait for it—Martina Hingis in 1997.

Bencic's 2015 season has started with a whimper. She's won just one match in five tournaments, but the occasional dips in form shouldn't cause alarm. Her game is solid on both wings and a few growing pains are expected as she gets comfortable in her new position as a Top 40 player.
