Belinda Bencic v Misaki Doi Live
For the second time on the tour, 12th seeded Swiss Belinda Bencic will go up against the Japanese Misaki Doi, in the round two of the US Open 2015 on Wednesday.
Both the players started their run in the tournament on an excellent note, winning their respective matches in straight sets. Misaki Doi defeated Daniela Hantuchova, while the Swiss routed Sesil Karatantcheva. This year has proven to be a terrific one for Belinda Bencic, who has won two titles so far and reached the career high singles ranking of 12. Just 18 years of age, she rose to fame in the Rogers Cup, where she defeated four of the top 10 players, including Serena Williams in the final to lift her second trophy. Meanwhile, Misaki Doi has struggled a lot to move past the opening rounds this year. She failed to qualify for the Cincinnati Masters and WTA New Haven most recently. Her best run came in Nurnberg Cup, where she was the quarterfinalist.
The two players have met each other once in the past, in 2013 WTA Toyota, where Belinda Bencic won 6-4, 6-4. Given her momentum presently and the form she is in, she shouldn’t have any troubles in repeating the same feat again.
