‘NO SUR­PRISE THAT BIANCA’S THERE’

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Sport -

Belinda Ben­cic has a mes­sage for ten­nis fans. Bianca An­dreescu, the US Open’s 15th seed, has done enough al­ready. The 19-year-old may have only de­buted in the main draw here last week, but she has long shed the ‘sur­prise pack­age’ tag. Ben­cic, who went down to the Cana­dian in straight sets in the semi­fi­nals, said, “She won In­dian Wells and Toronto. She beat so many great play­ers. I definitely was not sur­prised. I don’t think any­one should be.”

“Bianca plays smart,” Ben­cic said, call­ing the teenager a tac­ti­cian. “She plays dif­fer­ent than other play­ers.”
