Switzerland wins its first Billie Jean King Cup! The highlights

For the first time in history, Switzerland climbs to the top of the world in the Billie Jean King Cup. The old Fed Cup, so to speak. The decisive victory in the first singles of Jil Teihcmann against Sanders, who despite the comeback attempt in the second set fails to complete the work at the threshold of two hours of play.

The Tokyo 2020 gold medal called to close the games is not wrong. On the contrary. Against Alja Tomljanovic he leaves just three games on the road and with a very clear 6-2 6-1 he definitively closes the practice and gives the team a historic victory in the competition after the very bitter end of the last edition.

First trophy in what is the new Fed Cup: now Switzerland is among the nations to have won the team competition for national teams with both men and women. The one in the men's field dates back to 2014, when Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka led to success for the first time in history.

It is the former world number one who sends a congratulatory message to the players who have won the trophy.
