Belinda Bencic spoke highly of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic dominating the men's game. The Swiss player said: “It’s very good how the top 3, they are unbelievable legends, they are on the top forever and the younger guys they have a very difficult job to overtake their place because they are just that amazing.
I really love to watch men’s tennis and it’s really good to see them all competing now and the younger guys you know challenging the older ones and the older ones not letting them take their place. Or me it is very entertaining as a fan”.
Bencic will face Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova on Sunday. The Russian said: "If tomorrow something were at stake for her, maybe she would be nervous, but now she will step on court relaxed tomorrow. I can’t say that she surprised me.
She impressed. I saw how she plays. I watched her (matches). But when you step on court against an opponent it is always a different feeling compared to when you watch. Especially on this surface: the bounce is low, and she plays low, with slices.
She has been playing awesome in the summer, she serves well and has an excellent reaction. She has great potential. It was very difficult for me today. So I was angry with her too." Bencic qualified for the WTA Finals for the first time in her career after her semi-final win over Kristina Mladenovic on Saturday.
