Having a best on-court experience with Roger Federer, Belinda Bencic is eager to team up with her compatriot in the mixed doubles event at Tokyo Olympics.
Swiss tennis professionals Federer and Bencic teamed up for the Hopman Cup. Also, they became a champion in 2018 and 2019.
The Tokyo Olympics was scheduled for this year, but it was postponed to next year due to COVID-19 outbreak.
However, WTA No.12 Belinda Bencic can’t wait to participate at a global event. Also, the 23-years-old is looking forward to hearing from the 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer.
In a recent interview, the former World No.4 Bencic was questioned over her participation at the Tokyo Olympics with Roger Federer.
Bencic replied, “I’m ready. It’s just up to Roger now (laughs). No, nothing has been decided yet; everything is still very far away for me. But in addition to the Grand Slam tournaments, the Olympic Games remain one of my big goals – in singles and maybe also in mixed. If we stay healthy, I would like to compete with Roger.”
“Roger Is So Easy-Going, Always Has Everything Under Control”: Belinda Bencic
Former World No.1 Roger Federer is always playing amid thousands of fans and a storm of hype, but he never exposed strong emotions after win or loss. On the other hand, Swiss maestro is excellent in respecting others, especially fans.
While comparing herself with Roger Federer over managing publicity, Bencic explained, “Roger is so easy-going, always has everything under control, something I saw firsthand at the Hopman Cup.”
Four times WTA singles titles winner continued, “He(Federer) always manages to greet everyone. I’m overwhelmed when two people want something from me at the same time (laughs). But Roger also had to learn to deal with it first. At 23 he probably couldn’t do that. I couldn’t live like him.”
