Belinda Bencic smashes Tomljanovic to lift Switzerland to the Billie Jean King Cup trophy

Bencic led Switzerland to the final last year but they could not overpower Russia, but they proved better than Australia this year.

Bencic was once again instrumental in the run this year as she was able to win all of her matches played at the event demonstrating tremendous confidence in her tennis. She watched Teichmann beat Sanders earlier today to secure the first point for her nation giving Bencic a chance to close it out.

She did not show any nerves in her match against Tomljanovic establishing control pretty early with a break. She would add another break later on in the opening set to take it 6-2. As impressive as the first one was, the second was even more impressive.

She smashed Tomljanovic 6-1 to secure the second point and the trophy. It was just a superb display against a very shaky Tomljanovic who sprayed too many errors in this one. Switzerland are your 2022 Billie Jean King Cup champions.
