Belinda Bencic became the first Swiss tennis player to win Olympic gold, after overcoming to the Czech Marketa Vondrousova in the final, and as a result of this it did not take long for the recognition of different tennis stars to arrive on their social networks.
If someone could not miss it was Roger Federer, one of those in charge (together with Stan Wawrinka, in Beijing 2008) in bringing Switzerland the second of the three gold medals in tennis at the Olympic Games. The Basel man, true to his style, left a subtle message with enormous meaning: “History 🥇 @belindabencic 🤩”.
From one champion to another champion. Monica Puig, the Puerto Rican who was a gold medalist in Rio 2016, gave an honorable welcome to the club of tennis players who have a gold medal.
Congrats @BelindaBencic !!!! Welcome to the Gold Medal Club !!!! 🥇👏

And another tennis star who was present on social networks was Gabriela Sabatini, silver medalist in Seoul 1988. “Congratulations, I am very happy for you.”
