Tokyo Olympics LIVE: Tennis-Belinda Bencic vs Marketa Vondrousova – Women’s singles Gold medal match; Live Stream, Scores, Date, Time, All you need to know.
Belinda Bencic and Marketa Vondrousova will face off in the Gold medal match of the women’s singles category in the Tokyo Olympics. Bencic, the ninth seed, navigated her path into the final by defeating Elena Rybakina 7-6(2), 4-6, 6-3 and will be the first Swiss to win two medals in the same Olympics campaign after she progressed to the doubles final as well.
The 24-year-old is also the fifth player to reach two finals at the same Olympics after Serena and Venus Williams, Andy Murray and Nicolas Massu. Marketa Vondrousova has stunned one and all in the tournament, beating Naomi Osaka in round 3 (6-1, 6-4) and 4th seed Elina Svitolina (6-3, 6-1) in the semifinals. She is the first Czech player to make the Olympic singles player and will hope to crown the moment with glory.
The duo have only met once previously in their careers, with Vondrousova earning a hard-fought three-set win over Bencic in Miami earlier this year. Vondrousova is no stranger to making it big, as she reached the French Open finals as a teenager, and achieved a ranking as high as 14. However, Bencic has had a more storied career, having teamed up with Roger Federer for Switzerland in the past, and achieving a career-high ranking of four in February last year.
