Belinda challenges a ball that was obviously out, then doesn't challenge a second serve call that looked wrong.. C'mon Bel!

Couldn't find a decent stream for the life of me, but I'm so happy for Bencic! Winning a Premier 5 beating Sabalenka, Halep, Svitolina and Kvitova is fantastic. I feared for her after all those injuries, but she might be in the right path to leave a mark again.

Belinda got the job done. I hope she can back up this title with good performances through the season. She has great potential to become a top 10 fixture.

She beat Sabalenka and after that her work was done.

Grats to Bencic on then winning a bunch more matches and claiming the title though.. I suppose the title is also nice.

Twice now Kvitova has lost in finals to a player I couldn't also help root for. Bencic kinda let Kvitty beat herself but was brilliant earlier in the tournament, so fully deserved the win.
 
This is all because of Miss Sabalenka who couldn't convert her 6 MPs grrrr. But yeah Bencic ain't bad.
Well, thank God for that, I say. Can't stand Sabalenka. Projects way too much disgust at defeat and bad attitude for a non elite player. It's not like she's Serena Williams getting upset by some nobody.

If Top 10 player is non-elite I don't know who is.

I watched her match against Bencic, and in fairness, Bencic didn't always behave that well. I didn't see Sabalenka repeatedly banging her racquet against the floor, or screaming at her box. Bencic was.
The noise is annoying though.
