Speaking with RT, Belinda Bencic spoke of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic's dominance. The Swiss player said: "It's very good how the top three 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. For me, it's very entertaining as a fan."
Asked if she may play mixed doubles against Federer, Bencic replied: "I definitely don't think I can be a rival for Roger Federer. I don’t think anyone can be. So definitely not. I’m just incredibly grateful I got to meet him in Hopman Cup and you know what, he has been telling me the tips he gave me the experience to play next to him and also to spend some time with him on the tournament it's for me amazing and for all Switzerland and for tennis I think he’s just been amazing."
She also praised Daniil Medvedev: "He’s been dominating the tour in the last month pretty amazingly so big well done to him, he’s a very smart and intelligent player. So I hope they can somehow agree to it."
Bencic is in the Red Group in the WTA Finals in Shenzhen. The other players in the group are Naomi Osaka, Ashleigh Barty and Petra Kvitova. Elina Svitolina, Simona Halep, Karolina Pliskova and Bianca Andreescu are the Purple Group.
