Silvana Tirinzoni's Team Switzerland added another win to their record at the 2023 World Women's Curling Championship on Monday, picking up a dominant victory over Daniela Jentsch and Team Germany in Draw 7 in Sandviken, Sweeden.

The Swiss rink- with fourth rock thrower Alina Patz, second Carole Howard, and lead Briar Schwaller-Huerlimann- took control early on in Monday's content and didn't look back. After picking up a deuce in the first end with hammer, Tirinzoni's team would go on to steal two more in the second, one in three, two in four, and two more in five to hold an insurmountable 9-0 lead at the break.

World Curling Federation rules mandate a minimum of six ends at World Championship competitions, so the teams returned in the sixth which saw Germany blank before picking up a single in seven. With one point finally on the board, Jentsch would concede, handing Tirizoni's crew a 9-1 victory.

The win marks Switzerland's fifth of the tournament, as the defending champions remain the only undefeated rink left in the event. Sitting atop the standings in sole possession of first place, Team Tirinzoni has Monday night off in Sandviken, before returning to the ice Tuesday afternoon in Draw 10 against Kerri Einarson's Team Canada.

Tirinzoni and Einarson have met many times throughout their respective careers, with the Swiss skip leading the head-to-head record with 13 wins to Einarson's 10. The two rinks have faced eachother twice so far season, with Tirinzoni picking up the victory in both matchups.
