Belinda Bencic seals Switzerland's win over Canada at Billie Jean King Cup Finals

Belinda Bencic needed to win in order for Switzerland to move on at the Billie Jean King Cup and she did just that by beating Fernandez in straight sets.

Andreescu lost the first match and Fernandez lost the second set to give Switzerland a chance to go to the semi-final once more. They played in it last year as well and it seems like they are on the path to a final once more.

The opening set showed a very confident Bencic against Fernandez dominating play from the baseline. Bencic and Fernandez played a tight match in Guadalajara recently and Bencic won that match as well. This set went far easier than the first in that match as Bencic served up a bagel.

The second set was far more competitive as Fernandez played a better match despite being wonky on serve. She was down 4-5 when Bencic served for the match, breaking the Swiss. Still, Bencic remained calm and broke the serve of Fernandez once more to take the match 7-5 in the second set.
