Billie Jean King Cup

Mission accomplished for Belgium's Lotto Billie Jean King Cup team. With captain Wim Fissette, Belgium went 3-1 over Hungary in an atmospheric Charleroi Dôme. After the opening day of the Play-Offs, the signs were 1-1, but Belgium finished it off on Sunday. Greet Minnen (WTA 62) beat Anna Bondar (WTA 114) 3/6, 6/3 & 6/4. Yanina Wickmayer (WTA 74) then provided the decisive point: she won 6/2, 6/7 & 6/1 over Dalma Galfi (WTA 136). Thanks to this victory, Belgium may go to the Qualifiers in April 2024.
