"So just things worked out for me", said Bencic.
She added that despite failing in the first title defence of her career, she thought she had handled the challenges well, saying: "I didn't lose in the first round". "I played I think a great match". Actually, today I cried after a long time. She finished out the next game for a 3-1 lead and led 5-1 before Collins saved a match point to hold and make Osaka serve out the match.
Following Fed Cup and her Dubai title over Petra Kvitova, Bencic has now won her last 11 matches. "I have been practicing on Court 3 for the past few days, and I'm really grateful there is a lot of people that come out and watch". "Then I just tried to really hype myself up".

Osaka was not the only top player who was shocked in California court as world No. 2 and 2015 title victor Simona Halep also fell to Czech teenager Marketa Vondrousova by 6-2, 3-6, 6-2.
Vondrousova will go for another big win when she faces sixth-seeded Elina Svitolina, who battled to a 7-6 (10/8), 5-7, 6-4 victory over Australian Ashleigh Barty.
"I need to do what I want, and what I want is to play the tournaments I want to play".
"You know, I was working before coming here on my fitness".
"She was playing really fast and flat, so that was something I was not really expecting", the German said of her opponent. Venus Williams reached the quarterfinals with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Mona Barthel.
She lost in straight sets in her next match to Kristina Mladenovic at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, which left Osaka in tears.
