Belinda Bencic took a tumble at Hopman Cup on Tuesday, quite literally.

Playing against Serena Williams of United States, the Swiss star gave away one-set advantage to go down 6-4 4-6 3-6 in the women’s singles encounter.

Not that she went down tamely, but Bencic suffered an embarrsing moment in the second set.

In a quest to return a dropshot from Williams in the third game, Bencic was so committed on making it that she stumbled on to the net.

No wonder, both players couldn’t control their laughter as they exchanged a quick funny word at the net.

Williams’ win kept United States alive in the rubber as Swiss ace Roger Federer had clinched a 6-4 6-1 win over Frances Tiafoe earlier in the day.

The two teams will now compete in the decisive mixed doubles rubber.
