Switzerland and Canada will be Italy’s opponents in the Billie Jean King Cup 2022 final. This was the result of today’s draw at the BBC studios, which saw Billie Jean King as the protagonist. The event will take place from November 8 to 13 at the Emirates Stadium in Glasgow.

Twelve national teams will play in the BJK Cup finals. The teams are divided into four groups of three categories. The winners of each group qualify for the semi-finals. The winner of Group A, Italy, will play the winner of Group D, while B and C will meet in the other semi-final.

Italy punched their ticket to the final thanks to a fantastic and emphatic win over France in Alghero. A success without stories, Camilla is Giorgi’s best heroine. Marcheson, in fact, won both singles with ease and will surely spearhead the Blue team on the hard court in Glasgow.

A tricky draw for Blue, who had to face the last edition’s finalist. In fact, Switzerland lost to Russia in the last match of the tournament. Definitely a top class build with two valuable players in Belinda Bencic and Jill Teichmann. Canada is also a strong team And who can count on Leila Fernandez and former US Open champion Bianca Andreescu.
