Elina Svitolina and Belinda Bencic are in Chicago this week, and the two managed to find time to enjoy the Windy City ahead of their Chicago Fall Tennis Classic campaigns. The two WTA competitors spent the day together at the "Skydeck at Willis Tower" on Monday afternoon.
At 1,353 feet in the air, the deck's glass boxes are part of the third tallest building in the western hemisphere. Good thing Bencic and Svitolina both know a thing or two about overcoming great heights—the two appeared to not be scared or nervous at all.
The Ukrainian and Swiss posed for photos together during the interactive hour-long experience and Bencic even brought an extra special guest with her. Donna Vekic's cute pup Mali accompanied Bencic during her trip to the 103rd floor.
"I look very much like an obsessed auntie," Bencic wrote with a laughing/crying emoji on her Instagram story.
No. 1 seed Elina Svitolina received a bye and awaits the winner of Amanda Anisimova and Viktorija Golubic. Similar to Svitolina, Bencic also received a bye and will take on Maddison Inglis in the round of 32 at the WTA 500 event.
