Belinda Bencic was defeated by Jill Teichmann in the second round in Indian Wells 6:3, 3:6 and 3:6.

Perhaps Belinda Bencic (WTA 9) imagined her birthday differently: she lost in three sets at the WTA 1000 tournament in Indian Wells in the second round to Jill Teichmann (WTA 39) 6: 3, 3: 6, 3: 6. Teichmann finished the duel Swiss after 2:32 hours with her third match point.

A promising start for Bencic

Ranking list 9. Optimally started in the game. The 26-year-old managed to get her first game of service from her marital partner. Bencic remained on the trigger after that: although she also gave up her serve, she managed to win the set 6: 3 thanks to another break.

Reverse the roles of the second group

A different picture was presented in the second round. There was Teichmann who managed to make a breakthrough in serving in the first game. Bencic looked shocked and was only able to respond mid-sentence – but not for long as the world number 39 cracked.

Bencic is struggling – and losing

Bencic continued to throw his hands in the third set. Her racket was also affected. The reason for this: Eastern Switzerland made a lot of mistakes and had to abandon its service twice. Bencic resisted a bit, but in the end she had no choice but to congratulate her opponent on her birthday.

Teichmann meets either Shuai Zhang (CHN) or Rebecca Peterson (SWE) in the third round.
