Who is Belinda Bencic?

Like Zverev, Bencic is aged 21, and she was born in Flawil, Switzerland on March 20, 1997 – making her exactly one month older than her rumoured boyfriend.

Bencic began playing tennis when she was four-years-old and turned professional in 2012 , aged 15.

In February 2016, she was ranked no.7 in the world – her highest ranking – however, she is currently rated as the no.37.

Bencic has recorded victories against the likes of Serena Williams, Caroline Wozniacki, Ana Ivanovic, , and Simona Halep – while notably partnering countrymen Roger Federer in a doubles competition.

In 2015, Bencic won her biggest career title, the Rodgers Cup – and she also picked up the Aegon International in Eastbourne the same year.
