BIEL/BIENNE, Switzerland -- Children attending the Ladies Open Biel Bienne over the weekend got to get a glimpse of two of their country's biggest WTA stars, as Switzerland's Belinda Bencic and Martina Hingis participated in the tournament's Kids' Day festivities, organized by Swiss Tennis.

The duo forms quite the Swiss trifecta on the WTA tour alongside Timea Bacsinszky and held a youth clinic as part of the event ahead of Monday's main draw.

Both players will face Carina Witthoeft in the first round of their respective tournaments, as the wildcard Bencic will face the German in singles while Hingis and Bacsinszky will square off against Witthoeft and Diana Marcinkevica in doubles.
