Belinda Bencic (Slovak: Belinda Benčičová, pronounced [ˈbelinda ˈbent͡ʃit͡ʃoʋaː]; born 10 March 1997) is a Swiss professional tennis player, and a former top 10 ranked player. She has won two singles and two doubles titles on the WTA Tour.
In 2012, Bencic made her debut for the Switzerland Fed Cup team. The following year, she won the French Open and Wimbledon girls' singles titles. Bencic also reached the quarterfinals of the 2014 US Open, defeating two top-ten players along the way, including former world No. 1, Jelena Janković. This propelled her singles ranking into the top 40 for the first time in her career.
In 2015, Bencic won the Aegon International, her first singles title on the WTA Tour, beating Agnieszka Radwańska in the final. This caused her singles ranking to rise into the top 20. She won the biggest title of her career at the Rogers Cup the same year, beating four top-ten players Caroline Wozniacki, Ana Ivanovic, world No. 1 Serena Williams, and Simona Halep en route.Description provided by Wikipedia
