A former world number four Belinda Bencic has seen a rise back into the top 10 following some time off because of fitness and form concerns. All the information on which racquet does Belinda Bencic use and its specifications can be found in the sections below.
Having begun her career as a junior world number one, Bencic looked to be following on the footsteps of fellow Swiss champion Martina Hingis. She began playing at the ITF level in 2011 and at an early age of 17, Bencic made it to the US Open quarterfinal.
This was the first year of Grand Slam tennis for Bencic and it looked like we were looking at a future Grand Slam champion.
Things did not go as planned though as Bencic struggled to make it to another Grand Slam quarterfinal for five more years. A couple of WTA titles including her maiden one in 2015 at Eastbourne were followed by a third at Taipei in 2017. However, injuries meant Bencic stayed away from three of the four Grand Slams played that year.
It was at the 2018 Australian Open she made a Grand Slam comeback but lost in the second round following an opening round win over Venus Williams. Another second round loss at Roland-Garros was followed by her first solid Grand Slam showing in more than three years when Bencic made the fourth round at Wimbledon.
Three third round exits at the 2019 Grand Slams might not have pleased Bencic too much but the signs of her getting back to her best were there and she showed her mettle at the US Open that year with a semifinal appearance. A walkover from Anett Kontaveit (check Kontaveit’s racquet here) was followed by shock wins over Naomi Osaka and Donna Vekic before she fell to Bianca Andreescu.
One of the reasons for Bencic’s comparison with Hingis is they both have the same coach – Hingis’ mom, Melanie Molitorová. And that is why there is some resemblance in the technique of the two players as well. Bencic has strong groundstrokes which she uses to set the points up by throwing her opponents off-guard.
Bencic’s strength lies in her ability to be able to take the attack to the opposition by hitting the ball early, turning a defensive position into an attacking on many an occasion.
