Bencic is officially back to displaying form last seen in 2015, her defeats of Sabalenka and now, former number one Halep, in Dubai, indicate she has the game to make it deep in upcoming slams.
I feel like this could be her time, particularly at the US open later this year, as she usually shows her best tennis on hard courts. I love the fluidity of her strokes, especially her two handed backhand, and ability to take the ball on the rise.

She’s lost a noticeable amount of the weight in the offseason. While it might help in photo shoots, in matches such as the Hopman Cup she lacked power. Im fine with her shedding the baby fat but she needs to out on some more muscle to contend.

She makes up for the lack of weapons with good anticipation and taking the ball pretty early. I'm not sure she's capable of winning a slam, but at the same time we know she's capable of beating the top players, Her run to the Toronto (or Montreal) title was really solid. She beat some very good players along the way, including Serena and Halep.
