Swiss Belinda Bencic commented on her victory over Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka in Dubai and the upcoming meeting with Romanian Simona Halep.
“Honestly, in such fights you forget what happens on the court, what a score. When your opponent has several match points, you find yourself at the edge of the abyss and you do not know what to do next. My team always believed in me, although I didn’t I believed, therefore I am grateful to them and I am glad that I was able to pull out this match.
Getting to the quarterfinals is very important to me. I came to Dubai three times, but never went so far. It is not easy to play here, the ball is flying unpredictably, so I used to be uncomfortable here.
As for Halep, she is a real champion. Her game is different from the style of Sobolenko. I will definitely watch the records of her matches, but now I want to enjoy the victory. Now I don’t feel the pressure on the court, but just enjoy the game, ”the Bencic press service reports.
