Swiss Belinda Bencic told what has changed in her character with age.
“The difference between Belinda in 2014, when she reached the quarterfinals of the US Open at the age of 17, and the current one, I used to have nothing to lose. When you move from juniors and meet your idols, you don’t need to protect points, nothing prevents you from just playing tennis.
Now I have more experience, but at the same time I need to worry about protecting points, winning more matches, and this is not easy. I hope I have become wiser. Injuries and time spent off-court made me better as a player and person. I am grateful that this happened between the ages of 21-22 years, “Bencic quotes Tennis World USA.
