BJK Cup Finals Day 6 - Switzerland at last; ATP Finals underway

Twelve months on from the heartbreak of Prague, Switzerland are the Billie Jean King Cup champions for the first time ever after beating Australia in the final in Glasgow. 

David and Matt react to wins for Jil Teichmann and Belinda Bencic, discuss the celebrations, and go inside the press conference room as Matt came full circle with a very happy (and tipsy) Swiss team. 

There’s also admiration for Storm Sanders’ efforts, discussion about how Australia can turn themselves into champions, and curiosity over whether Bencic can carry her team competition form into the slams. 

We also review the event generally and discuss how it might improve in the future. 

Over in Turin at the ATP Finals, was Felix Auger-Aliassime disappointing in his loss to Casper Ruud? And should we be encouraged by Rafael Nadal’s first set form or worried about how he faded against Taylor Fritz?
