It was an excellent match taking more than 2h. Without a breakball against her serve and a set ball at 5:4 Belinda lost the first set 6:7. In the second set Belinda served for the set twice but two breaks and a 5-2 lead were not enough to force a third set. Two terrific US Open weeks with a win over Naomi Osaka (JPN) and reaching the semi-finals, make Belinda look forward the upcoming tournaments in Asia.
