2 chokers down, 1 to go for Belinda. It was hilarious how badly Flipkens did not want to win today. The way she refused to convert 2 set points on serve in the 1st set tiebreak was vintage Flipkens if you know what I mean. Russian Indoors tournament specialist Mlad has beaten Bencic 4 times in a row, so maybe not all is lost.

Funny how in the interview she spoke as if she already missed the cut for Shenzhen. Clearly the pressure tomorrow will be enormous.

Good job Belinda :D :cheer:


Her smashes though left much to be desired. :tape:
Her smashes are usually quite good, must have been the lights or something. Players complaining all week about people moving in the crowd too.

More likely just got a bit tight, they were both big points (first down BP at 6-5, second at 7-7 in the TB). Bencic came back really well after a slow start in the first set but struggled to close it out generally. Once she had it under her belt (with some help from Flipkens, though Bencic played the last two points magnificently) she cruised.

Flipper. :sad: Another match that was kind of hers for the taking (at least the first set was). Still a positive week. Hopefully in 2020 she can make more of a dent in singles.

Things are not looking good for Naomi in Shenzhen if Belinda manages to win her match tomorrow <img src="http://www.tennisforum.com/images/smilies/oh.gif" border="0" alt="" title="oh" class="inlineimg" />
Lol...it doesn't matter that much imo. Even if Belinda qualifies, they may not be in the same group.
Bianca may be more hitching to get a revenge on Naomi than Bratlinda. And I may be supporting Bianca on that front...lol.

Bencic may also be too tired from the YEC qualification hustle that Osaka trashes her in straight sets.

Bencic is jealous that Mladenovic has a good looking (even though he is gay af) boyfriend while Bencic’s own grandpa I mean boyfriend is not as cute

I also wonder why Belinda couldn’t secure Sasha Zverev to be her boyfriend in a first place :shrug: They seemed to be a thing for a while.
