"This was like a childhood dream coming true" - Bencic adds to Olympic Gold medal with Billie Jean King Cup Finals glory for Switzerland

Belinda Bencic scored another huge win for her country winning the Billie Jean King Cup on top of the gold medal.

Bencic won the gold medal for Switzerland at the Tokyo Olympics and she added another trophy for her country by winning the Billie Jean King Cup this year. She was the MVP of her team winning all of her matches en route to the trophy.

It's a huge deal to her after failing to do it last year when Russian defeated Switzerland in the final:

“Yeah, probably I should just become a team player now and never play for myself again. I feel like I’m not playing for myself out there. I’m fighting for, you know, all the team and for all Switzerland, for our country. This was like a childhood dream coming true. Hearing the national anthem and watching the Swiss flag, it’s really something big for me."

She added:

“I just feel like it brings out the best, brings out those extra percentages which maybe I cannot bring in the other tournaments. I’ll just need Viki and Jil and Simona and Heinz and Phil in all my matches. If they cannot make it, I’ll just retire.”
