The Australian, who won the French Open a year ago, said she was taking nothing for granted while holding the top WTA ranking.

The 20-year-old confirmed he had been desperate to play at the Adelaide International and said the city has a special place in his affections after he won his first Davis Cup match here against Bosnia and Herzegovina nearly 12 months ago.

The 22-year-old Swiss, a wildcard player who lost her opening game of the year last week in Shenzhen, beat good friend Daria Kasatkina from Russian Federation 6: 4: 6: 4.

"It was a whirlwind year, but I'm back competing and doing what I love".

"It was very hard, but I like the heat and I'm happy to be here for the first time", said Bencic, who topped the rankings past year and won 49 on her way to one of the two titles in Moscow and Dubai best games of career.

She survived a first set against Kasatkina with five service breaks and secured second place in the last game of the second round.
