Moscow SF: (3) (WC) Bencic def. Mladenovic 6-3 6-4

She's going to Shenzhen! Overall good performance from Bencic, she looked so strong when she was focused. But there were some mental lapses and AWFUL BP conversion. Her game is delightful, shame her personality isn't. Her celebration with coach was cute though, so congrats imo. And best wishes to Naomi

Well done Belinda She holds her nerves, even in the end when serving for the match! Her happiness in the end was cute to see
Kiki on the other hand started and ended the match very poorly (many UEs in the first games for instance, bad serving in the last games...). Nice competition for the rest of the match. Too bad, she missed the occasion of reaching a final this season

Sigh, I am one of the haters in ruins. Seethe seethe

I guess she deserved it, overcoming her mental and physical exhaustion unlike Kiki who melted.

Much more excited about Belinda's presence in Shenzhen than about Bertens', to be honest. She will add some interesting matchups.

Bencic #8 in the live rankings at 3955 with Serena at 3935 in 9th.
She worked hard at the end of the year, and it paid off big time.

Last year at this time, she won the ITF in Las Vegas. So a big move up.

Re: Moscow SF: (3) (WC) Bencic def. Mladenovic 6-3 6-4

Good match. Missed the first three games, but after that Kiki played well, and it was a pretty even contest throughout until Belinda pulled away at the end of the second set.

Would expect Kiki to push back towards the top twenty next season, seems to be improving quite a bit under Bajin.

Belinda adds variety to the tour finals line up. Good, consistent season and looks likeliest to be the next new player to make a big move in a Slam.

I don't know what Belinda is going to be getting her good friend Kristina for Christmas but it better be good.

But in all seriousness, I am happy for her and her place in the YEC is deserved. Well done to her.
