LONDON — Belinda Bencic of Switzerland beat Taylor Townsend of the United States 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 Saturday to win the Wimbledon girls' championship.
It's the second consecutive junior Grand Slam title for the 16-year-old Bencic, following the French Open last month.
The top-seeded Bencic also defeated the 17-year-old Townsend in Paris and at a grass-court Wimbledon tournament at Roehampton, England. Townsend won the 2012 Australian Open girls' title.
Says Bencic: "Everything is difficult when you play her. It's really tough to play against her every time."
Bencic is coached by her father and Melanie Molitor, who is the mother of five-time major champion Martina Hingis.
