Belinda Bencic fails in Rome because of a qualifier

Belinda Bencic (23) certainly did not envision returning to the WTA tour like this: The eastern Swiss woman loses her opening game in Rome against qualifier Danka Kovinic (25, WTA 86) in two sets 3: 6, 1: 6.

Seven months after her last serious fight on the tour, number 6 seeded Bencic was still a bit rusty. Only half of her first serves ended up in the field, four times she had to give up her serve.
