"If she will do this, I will kill her" - Bencic Jokes About Incredible Tweener From Jabeur

Belinda Bencic was beaten by Ons Jabeur in the Charleston Open final, who broke her in the first set after an incredible sequence that featured a tweener.

Bencic looked good for a good portion of the match stepping up to serve for the first set at 5-4. She had a set point but Jabeur extended the game enough to see herself find a break point. That break point featured an incredible rally where Jabeur stunned Bencic with a tweener shot which she followed up by a spectacular passing shot to break.

It proved crucial as she would ultimately win the opening set in the tiebreak. After the final match, Bencic referenced that point complaining that she would have nightmares because of it as well as jokingly warning Jabeur about doing that again.

I will have to accept the fact, and hope that maybe I will play her in a Grand Slam final and she will not do this. If she will do this, I will kill her. For sure, I will go to sleep thinking about this shot, like it will be in front of my eyes, but next week I will not think about it anymore because we have a new tournament.

Bencic jokes about the tweener

Despite the joke, Bencic was ultimately very complimentary to Jabeur whom she called a really great player. They have a really good relationship off the courts and perhaps we see them play a 3rd consecutive final next year.

I think she's really a high-quality player, and she really has all the tools in her box. When I'm playing my best, I can try to press her and push her. But I think today she just also moved very good, and she was really counterattacking very well. She did all the things a little bit better today.
