Belinda Bencic is rising!

The Swiss has just turned 17 to be one of the hottest prospects in tennis.

Ranked world no.58, Belinda has defeated back to back Angelique Kerber and Jelena Jankovic to have a shot at reaching the US Open semifinal.

The match against Jankovic was  big roller coaster (10 breaks in total) with the teenager winning 7-6 (6) 6-3 after scoring 92 points vs. Jelena’s 84. Match Stats.

Belinda is the youngest player to reach the quarters at the US Open since her great friend and mentor Martina Hingis made it in 1997.

Belinda will play Shuai Peng for a place in the semifinal. This is the first time they play each other. See H2H rankings progression.
