Bencic keeps winning, she won the title in Taipei

Belinda Bencic's winning streak reached 10 straight matches after eliminating countrywoman Viktorija Golubic in the Taipei OEC Open semifinals and winning against Arantxa Rus in the final. Bencic who is training in the EMPIRE Tennis Academy in Trnava on the regular basis won in the final 7-6(3) 6-1. "I want to congratulate my opponent first of all, I think she played a great week, even in doubles, and it was very tough to play [Rus] today."

Belinda Bencic's rich vein of form at the end of the year continues, as she defeated Arantxa Rus of the Netherlands, 7-6(3), 6-1, in the championship match of the Taipei OEC Open on Sunday.

Belinda Bencic has now won 10 consecutive matches and two WTA 125K Series titles in back-to-back weeks, after her triumph at the EA Hua Hin Championship last weekend. The Swiss former World No.7 is projected to re-enter the Top 100 on Monday due to her victory, after missing nearly five months on tour this spring and summer due to injury.

The competitive first set featured strong, clean hitting by both players, and they each won over 73 percent on their first serves in the opening frame. But Bencic was able to take more opportunities when presented to her in the second set -- she was 3-for-5 on break points there, as opposed to 1-for-6 in the opening frame.
