Swiss tennis player Belinda Bencic commented on reaching the semifinals of the tournament in Indian-Wells.
“I wasn’t surprised by her game. I knew that she punches hard. My task was to draw her into the pranks, play well in defense and try to take the initiative when the opportunity arose. I am very confident in myself. I try to take a step step by step, and now I have already taken a lot of steps. But now I don’t put pressure on myself, but just play.
Yesterday I said that the less I think on the court, the better. When you have confidence in yourself, you must trust your instincts , and nothing else is needed. If it works out, why change something. I am well improved physically. I am much better on the court than ever before. I feel fresher than my rivals, and get tired longer. That is what is needed to counter top tennis players. You need to be in incredible shape not only in one tournament, but for many weeks in a row.
Of course, I am very glad that I reached the semifinal. I did not think about winning again. I just go to the court and play, focus on my tennis and don’t pay attention to who is on the other side of the court. I try to show my best tennis and fight to the very end “, – Bencic quotes the press service of the Tour.
