Swiss Belinda Bencic commented on her victory in the tournament in Dubai .
“I didn’t think about winning at all when I came to Dubai. I just watched who I would play in the first round and wanted to win. After entering the third round, the tournament was already considered successful. Victory over Sabalenka was already a bonus. It was not necessary because she is in the top 10.
I really respect Petra. She is an amazing tennis player, a real champion. Throughout the match, I did not believe that I could beat her. Seriously! I just walked from draw to draw, without looking far ahead. I am very glad that I was able to play steadily. Even after a hard match, I was psychologically ready to win the next one. This is difficult, “- Bencic quotes the press service of the WTA.
