Belinda Bencic (25) has already won the race against time. I got to the church road. It makes sense for a world-class tennis player, but he has a serious background. A week ago, eastern Switzerland had to succumb to injury in the WTA final in Berlin – just a week before Wimbledon.
“I slid forward and stretched over my knee and squeezed my Achilles tendon,” says the eastern Swiss woman in London. Subsequent investigations allow for slight clarity. Nothing broke, but it “just hurts”.
She must withdraw from the tournament in Bad Homburg, and so she returns home to Bratislava unscheduled. The motto: Cut and do it all to be Wimbledon ready. This means physical therapy and ultrasound examinations. Training is not available at the moment. She just completed her first tennis laps on sacred grass. “Of course I didn’t give 100 percent at first. But I’m close now.”
Bandage on the left leg
The left leg is still bandaged at the ankle and knee during both units. Bencic: “It helps me to regain confidence in my feet.” She’s ready for Monday’s match against Qiang Wang.
The day before the tournament started, Bencic looked relaxed and relaxed. No wonder – Wimbledon is her all-time favorite and grass is her favorite surface. The memory of the first match on the lawn is still vivid. “He was at the junior tournament in Halle. I didn’t play 10 minutes and I said, ‘Oh my God, he’s cool and he feels good.'”
But why does their playing style fit the green earth? “Because the game is so deep, the balls bounce flat. My steps aren’t perfect on the sand, but they are on the grass. It feels great from my shots.” Bencic can celebrate successes on the grass early on. She won the Women’s Junior Championships at Wimbledon in 2013. Two years later she won her first WTA title in Eastbourne. There are also three grass finals Others in the WTA Championships.
“Sometimes everything has to fit together”
In their relationship with Wimbledon on a professional level, the beginning of a happy ending is still missing. In seven attempts it is enough only for the round of 16 twice. Last year the first round ended earlier than ever. Sometimes it’s the performance, sometimes the body lets you down. Bencic doesn’t think she’s putting too much pressure on herself in her favorite tournament.
She has already shown at the US Open and especially at the Olympic Games that she can go far even in the major tournaments. But winning the Grand Slam remains the big dream. “Sometimes everything has to come together for a good tournament – a bit of luck with a draw, a good level. I hope it all comes out.”
She still has enough time. “I am 25, so I still have a few Wimbledons left. I plan and still hope to play well here.” But the happy ending could still come soon.
