I think Bencic will get a MDWC here as a former finalist and winner of the 100K.

Yes, read what Belinda just has said "I don't want wildcards, just to lose in R1, but I wanna work my way to the top!"

I can think of at least one player who should take note of that. Hats off to Belinda!

Who is paying out these huge appearance fees, Prokhorov? Abramovich?

If you think about CW, she got a wildcard and lost in R1, but so won one of the next tournaments she got one.

Oh, c'mon. Why would I mean Caro?

We had only 3-4 players starting 2017 from nothing (or close to nothing), and built their points up, but only one twisted hands left and right to get WC's everywhere. It wasn't Belinda. It wasn't Buzarnescu. It wasn't Barty either. It was... what was her name again? That player who prolly won the "most WC's granted" prestigious award this year, and still ended up below Barty & Buzarnescu (and Belinda's getting closer ).

Seems to be a great tournament line up. Let's hope it delivers.

Wow, hats off to Belinda, really.

What a girl. Let's hope we can really see her on tour next year then.

97 Generation is going to save the WTA. What a blessed year this was for tennis.

so there's hope they won't spend all their ressources on big names but keep the match break shows with the dancers and stuff. i'm not even into such thing at all but they're so ridiculously hilarious it totally transcends into a great and unique thing actually.
