TennisSection previews the 2021 US Open as Belinda Bencic takes on Martina Trevisan in the Round of 64 on Thursday, September 2nd, 2021.
Will Martina Trevisan be able to shock us all and be able to get a great win under her belt as she aims to knock out the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Gold medallist? Will Belinda Bencic continue to build momentum and show us why she is definitely getting back to her peak after years of struggles? Both players can challenge for the win in this match, but only one will make their way to the Round of 32. Who will it be?
Martina Trevisan won an easy match against the very unknown and low-ranked, Coco Vandeweghe, in straight sets 6-1/7-5. Martina Trevisan is a great player, but she has not really had a tough match in the opening round against a solid opponent so she will know that if she is to get further here at the 2021 US Open, she will have to be ready to raise her level. However, the Italian is going to have to meet one of the most in form players at the moment in Belinda Bencic, and she is going to have to hope to be solid from the baseline and be able to hang in draining rallies against the Swiss.
Belinda Bencic cruised through her opening round match, sending Arantxa Rus to whatever ITF tournament she is to play next, by beating her in straight sets 6-4/6-4. Belinda was amazing on her serve, winning 88% of first serves and 91% of second serves. She did not allow Arantxa to win many points on her serve at all, just 8 throughout the entire match. Belinda Bencic will be very happy with that win because it showed her determination to improve her serve and she will definitely use this to gain momentum as she now meets Martina Trevisan here at the 2021 US Open.
Belinda Bencic and Martina Trevisan have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. Martina Trevisan is a solid player, but her best game is on clay where she grew up playing. Belinda is good on all surfaces, and with the tennis she has been playing recently, especially with the improvement in her serve in her last match, I expect big things from the Swiss here. Belinda will know that it will be tougher than against Arantxa, but if she serves like that, she should still be able to come through this match with relative ease as she makes her way to the Round of 32 of the 2021 US Open.
