Belinda’s father, Ivan, has greatly inspired her life. At the age of two, she was introduced to tennis by her father.

Ivan wanted her to be as skilled as Martina Hingis, the then-World’s Number 1 tennis player. So, he managed her to have a training session with Hingis’s mother and the coach, Melanie Molitor.

With continuous and relentless practices, by the age of 16, Belinda bagged the two junior Grand Slam Single titles at the Wimbledon and French Open.

Eventually, she began her professional career at the 2014 US Open, becoming the youngest quarterfinalist after Martini Hingis in 1997.

Later, Belinda excelled in the sport, creating several records, including the gold (Singles) and silver (Doubles) in the 2020 Olympics.
