Bencic leaps into Oz main draw
When she came back after wrist surgery in late September, Belinda Bencic was ranked No. 312. Less than two months later, she's back in the top 100 and a virtual lock to make the Australian Open main draw. She did it in just six tournaments, only one at the WTA level – and the lowest level of the WTA Tour at that. Bencic clinched it with a win at the WTA 125K in Taipei last weekend. She didn't drop a set on the way to the title. Her won-loss record since her return: 23-3.
