With Belinda Bencic, at least one Swiss woman has reached the second round of the US Open. St. Gallen’s No. 13 fights against veteran German Andrea Petkovic (WTA 104) despite a mixed winning performance of 6:2, 4:6, 6:4.

Last year’s quarter-finalists and 2019 semi-finalists got off to a great start in the scorching sun of over 30 degrees and immediately won the top eight points. Only then did the 34-year-old Petkovic, who will be ending her career in the next few weeks, balance the game. In the second round, Bencic made up a 1:4 deficit, but gave it up again.
