Belinda Bencic: “Serena Williams no longer dominates”


The men’s tennis game has its three glass towers intact for almost 15 years. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have achieved 58 Grand Slams since the Swiss master won his first Slam at Wimbledon 2003. While in the women’s game, the consistency parameter is not similar to that of the men’s game. It continues to vary and despite that, Serena Williams has managed to stay on top for a long time.

While supporting Roger’s proposal to merge the two tours, Swiss professional Belinda Bencic highlighted the inconsistency factor in the women’s game. And she feels Williams is not dominant as she was before her pregnancy break.

“I agree with Roger. It would only be logical, people are confused with the two organizations. It would be nice if women and men played the same and equally gifted tournaments. Of course, there are many points that still need to be discussed in detail. But it would be a great thing, ”he told Blick.

“Right now, because they still have superstar players with Nadal, Djokovic and Federer. It is different with us women, Serena Williams no longer dominates. But that also changes again. People like to watch women’s tennis and if ATP and WTA were together they would watch both at the same time. I think many would appreciate it. ”

Serena Williams’ consistency on the WTA Tour
By contrast, in women, Serena Williams and Simona Halep are considered the queens of coherence. In 2014, Halep entered the first column of the WTA as the number 10 in the world, and since then has not left the main list.

Speaking of Williams, as a mother in her thirties, she has reached four Grand Slam finals, and is likely to be more likely in the next Majors to win her most anticipated 24 Slam title.

The women’s game has not seen a consistency similar to that of Federer, Nadal and Djokovic. His level of mastery is crazy. And probably the same rhythm of consistency is impossible to represent by any trio on tour. Logically, it is useless to compare the two paths, since they are two completely different professional domains.
