Tennis: This is what Belinda Bencicová says about her new coach

Bencic about their Russian coach

“Nowadays it’s hard for everyone how to behave”

Belinda Bencic has had a good year, but she expected more from herself. Next season he will have a new trainer in the box with Dimitri Tursunov. It doesn’t matter that he is Russian.


Belinda Bencic will end the year ranked 13th in the world.

At the Billie Jean King Cup, Belinda Bencic is aiming for a successful end to the tennis season with Switzerland. The Eastern Swiss personally had a decent season and will end the year ranked 13th in the world. Average performance at grand slams gives her motivation for the upcoming season – with a new coach.

Dimitri Tursunov (39) will accompany and train the Olympic winner in the future. About a month ago, she announced her collaboration with Anett Kontaveit and Emma Raducanu’s former coach. This caused a frown at first. Because when Raducanu announced her cooperation with the Russian in the summer, there was a lot of resistance from home.
