There is a simple reason for this: Your friend and fitness trainer Martin Hromkovic is Slovak and comes from Bratislava – and is a footballer himself. According to the “Transfermarkt” he is active with the Slovakian third division club OFK Dunajska Luzna, before that he also played in lower leagues in Germany and Austria.

«You can call Slovan my favorite club»

The 37-year-old didn’t have much to do with tennis before he met Belinda Bencic. So Hromkovic now apparently tries to bring football closer to his girlfriend. “I started to watch football intensely,” Bencic is quoted by Blick. With her boyfriend, she has often visited Slovan Bratislava games. “You can call it my favorite club today,” she says.

With her football knowledge, the Swiss girl is also popular in Russia. In St. Petersburg she also says that she would like to visit the Zenit stadium: “I heard that it was wonderful, at least that’s how it looks from the outside.”

As top seed, Bencic is the favorite for the tournament victory in St. Petersburg. On Friday (approx. 12:15 p.m.) she meets the Greek Maria Sakkari (WTA 21) in the quarterfinals.
