Billie Jean King Cup: Bencic and Teichmann challenged by Canada

The Swiss and Canada face off in a decisive battle for group victory and a place in the semi-finals in the Billie Jean King Cup final in Glasgow on Friday. Canada defeated Italy 3-0, as did the Swiss on Thursday. On paper, captain Heinz Gunthart’s team with Belinda Bencic (WTA 12) and Jill Teichmann (WTA 35) has a slight advantage against Lela Fernandez (WTA 40) and Bianca Andreescu (WTA 45). However, Canadians are more likely to be classified as strong than the classification suggests. Fernandez was in the final of last year’s US Open, and Andreescu won the tournament in 2019. He fell back in the rankings mainly due to injuries, but now seems to be in top form again. The winner of two singles and one doubles match will meet either the USA or the Czech Republic in Saturday’s semifinals.
