Belinda Bencic shares her excitement for reaching WTA Finals

In an interview to Bluewin Belinda Bencic spoke about how it feels to reach the WTA Finals in Shenzhen for the first time. The Swiss said: "Since even the beginning I was among the top 8 all the time thank to my win in Dubai.

I wanted to keep the position. After reaching the US Open semifinals, I saw a real chance." Bencic added: "I lost a bit in a silly way to Kudermetova in Wuhan. If I had beaten her, it could have changed a lot. The week after I was unlucky to play against Petra Kvitova in the third round.

In Linz the same thing, a very silly loss. Then in Moscow I got relaxed. For the rest it was a good season. It came everything together. Before the semifinals match against Kristina Mladenovic, I felt the pressure more and I was very nervous because I had this unique opportunity.

If I won, I would be in Shenzhen otherwise it's Kiki Bertens. I am very proud of representing Switzerland at the WTA Finals for the first time in a while", said Bencic. On how she sees her chances, Bencic added: "Those are difficult to predict.

There are the top eight players and I think the level will be very close. I will try to do my best to win as long matches as possible. I qualified as eight and so everyone is ahead of me. As I said, I am very happy for achieving this goal.

And I told myself, If we manage to do it, I will be as relaxed as possible because I will be so happy of playing there."
