St Petersburg SF Bencic def Kasatkina 6:4 6:3

Too bad Daria had to play the doubles yesterday. She should have withdrawn, becase they did not stand a chance against Santina anyway and the match took place after midnight. If she was not tired we could have had a very good match today. Lovely exchange at the net though. Daria has a new fan, she plays nice tennis and I like how composed she is on the court. Compared to Belinda. Anyway, win it all Beli. :P

She won this, Vinci has nothing to hurt her.

Kasatkina looks promising! Nice hug at the net

Belinda

Rough start but she started to play better and better as the match went on.

Re: St Petersburg SF Bencic def Kasatkina 6:4 6:3

Bencic was so tight, as could be expected given the situation, and she was a bit lucky Dasha played so poorly, especially on BPs. Still very proud of her for making Top 10

The difference between Dasha's FH and BH is startling. Under pressure her BH is just so bad (those BPs ). She doesn't accelerate and she just gives her opponent so many opportunities. She was clearly fatigued and frustrated at times, but a missed opportunity here, especially in the 1st She has so much potential though, with that FH, the angles and her smart court play

Very nice final

Belly has matured much more than Kasatkina since they last met 2013 it seems. She's the one for the future.
1st final in 2016, may she reach many more this season !

BIG CONGRATS FOR REACHING THE TOP 10. Was about time

KEEP IT UPWARDS !!!!!!!!!!!

Only 1 of 10 BPs converted by Daria ... or was it more a case of Belinda saving them?

Re: St Petersburg SF Bencic def Kasatkina 6:4 6:3

Belinda showed it again.She has an amazing ability to win the most important points even when playing poorly.And today was the prime example of this.Dont know why but she has been making way too many UEs this tournament,very unusual for her. But most importantly TOP 10 Hope you stay in there forever

Daria is an amazing defender and her forehand is just such a killer.If she keeps improving she is the top player of the future.I just hope she does not turn into one of those "choker" players cause she seems to be up and down a lot.Yes she is still young but she wont be getting so many opportunities as she had today and yesterday against Dominika.Daria needs to play much more aggressively and learn how to be in charge

Re: St Petersburg SF Bencic def Kasatkina 6:4 6:3

the hug at the end was lovely

belinda top10 fix that serve though. honestly belinda found herself in hot water in pretty much all of her service games, it was her clutch play and kasatkina slightly choking that saved those bp's. the difference between these two despite being the same age is obvious though. belinda plays the big points big and manages to finish it in 2 sets while playing below her level.

Re: St Petersburg SF Bencic def Kasatkina 6:4 6:3

Bencic is almost an exception in today's game. No one 18 now is doing anything close, but this was a normal young player career arc, 15 years ago.
It will be interesting to see if she stays hungry and keeps her mental focus

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: St Petersburg SF Bencic def Kasatkina 6:4 6:3

While we're all so busy discussing the Slam chances of every single player under the sun, Bencic at 18 y.o. is already displaying the sort of consistency throughout the season that even veteran Slam contenders would find difficult to emulate.

Don't know if she'll win big, what she'll win big and when she'll win big. But I'm beginning to think that Bencic will at least be part of the future whether we believe in it or not and whether we agree with it or not.
