Re: Mallorca SF : Belinda Bencic fed Angelique Kerber 2-6 7-6 6-4

Great fight fom Belinda! Congrats! :) Weird match from Angie. Felt like she was expecting to walk this one in the 2nd when she had those multiple BPs. Lost her groove, mood and the match. I'm sure she will not allow these kind of lapses @ Wimbledon or she might find herself in trouble already in R1.

I actually thought this was over, when Belinda was broken at 5-4 in the second set, but she proved me wrong.
In the third, one could feel that Belinda just wanted the win a little more.
Angie will be even stronger at Wimbledon.
Good match from both though, except for the excessive double faults from Belinda.

Disappointing stuff in set 2 and 3 from Angie. Why not being the aggressor at those 5775 break- and game points? Got broken after 40-0 and couldn’t convert 5 bp. I just don’t get her sometimes. Not convinced about Wimbledon.

Not encouraging when you show up to defend Wimbledon having won no titles since winning Wimbledon. Bencic on the other hand looks like a contender to win it all in three weeks, I expect her to win Mallorca tomorrow but Kenin will be an incredibly tough test. What a season she's having so far.

That match sums up Kerber's season so far, another headcase performance when taken to 3 sets.

6-1 to Mertens in Doha
6-0 to Hsieh in Dubai
6-4 to Andreescu in IW
6-1 to Andreescu in Miami
6-1 to Azarenka in Monterrey

Bencic thoroughly deserved the win today, outclassed a bit in the first but battled well in the second and third. She played the better Tennis towards the end of the second set despite having a blip, third set she stayed in front incredibly well and served it out like a boss.

Enjoyable match.
Angie will be pissed for all those BPs she had and couldn't convert.

Beli, don't you dare lose this now.

Very decent match from both, stats show it. Really entertaining as well. :yeah:

Right from the start, I had literally no hope Belinda would win, considering what happened in their last matches. :lol: I was just hoping for a good performance from Belinda. She herself didn't have much belief that she could win at first and missed many opportunities to make the match closer. But she fought and somehow won that 2nd set (first set won against Angie since 2016!) and she truly started to believe she could win this. It's just a MM tournament, but this win is such a good win for Belinda on the mental side! :yeah: Happy for her. :D
