TOKYO (AP) — A Swiss tennis player won gold in singles at the Olympics and it's not Roger Federer or Stan Wawrinka.
Belinda Bencic accomplished something Saturday that her better-known fellow Swiss players never managed.
And she's not done yet.
The 12th-ranked Bencic beat Marketa Vondrousova of the Czech Republic 7-5, 2-6, 6-3 at the Tokyo Games for the first major title of her career and she'll also contest the women's doubles gold medal match on Sunday.
Bencic and Swiss partner Viktorija Golubic face the top-seeded Czech team of Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova.
