Swiss Belinda Bencic commented on her victory in the tournament in Dubai.
“I am pleased with my game, especially in the final. In the end, I managed to cope with my nerves, and this is great. I respect Petra very much, so it was very hard for me in the final.
Last week’s Mertens victory was an inspiration to me. And even before that, I was impressed by the opposition between Osaka and Kvitova in Melbourne. We all learn from each other, it helps us to progress. The sensations of victory are incredible, I have not won major tournaments for a long time. I am not Federer yet and I cannot win at major tournaments every day or every week, ”the press service of the WTA quotes Bencic as saying.
