Belinda Bencic will be in action at Libéma Open. The world number 11 has pledged her participation.
In her first participation in 2015, Bencic played the final against Camilla Giorgi. The 26-year-old Swiss did not win that title match, but has a total of seven tournament victories on her record.
‘The green surroundings, impressive training courts and great tournament facilities make the Libéma Open an event that I always look forward to playing in. I have great memories of my final here, and hope that I will get another opportunity to play for the title this year!
Bencic recorded her biggest individual win in Tokyo where she picked up a gold medal at the Olympics. Last year, she won the Billie Jean King Cup with Switzerland.
Besides Bencic, Grand Slam champion Bianca Andreescu, Elise Mertens and Caty McNally are also coming to ‘s-Hertogenbosch. Ekaterina Alexandrova is the title holder.
Daniil Medvedev, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Marin Cilic and Dutchmen Botic van de Zandschulp, Tallon Griekspoor and Tim van Rijthoven are on the men’s tournament entry list.
