When my wife said Forsberg had 'dreamy eyes', that's the last time I've let her watch a hockey game with me.

While celebrating the great accomplishments, it would be nice if the topic subject included the correct spelling of her name (not Bouohard.....Bouchard) ;).


Fixed.  :)

Because she was objectifying someone who should be celebrated for their skills right.....RIGHT?

I feel like we need a higher standard for "makes history" than doing something that hasn't been done since the Reagan Administration.

19th-ranked Eugenie Bouchard wins Nuremburg Cup.  She becomes the second Canadian female to win a WTA singles title, first accomplished in 2008 by Aleksandra Wozniak.

Has a chance to hold serve for the match right now in what has been a rollercoaster/entertaining quarter-final.

And she wins it - first time in French Open history a Canadian will play in the semi-finals (thanks Mark Masters for the info).

She will play Russian Maria Sharapova for the semi-finals.

Great job by Eugenie.  The Davis Cup run and Bouchard's and Raonic's success in their respective field has brought a lot of attention to Canadian tennis that didn't exist before.

Here's hoping Raonic can finally breakthrough and beat one of the game's elite (Djokovic) in a Majors' match.

Action on now at Roland Garros in the Ladies Semi-Final matchup between Canadian Eugenie Bouchard and  Russian Maria Sharapova. as Bouchard wins first set 6-4 but Shrapova takes second set 7-5. 

C'mon Eugenie, you can do it!

Down 4-1 in the 3rd.  Not looking good.

Bouchard fell to Sharapova.  Still, a nice run and it is good to see both Raonic and Bouchard inching forward with success.

Guess Sharapova was determined not to be outdone by a young Canuck on the rise.  Still, Bouchard, if she had been a little more perfect, probably would have made it more difficult for her opponent.

Look out tennis world, Canada's got talent!

Bouchard goes from 13th-ranked to top 10 with win in the 2014 Wimbledon quarter-finals over Kerber.  She now enters semi-finals against Romanian Halep, who defeated Eugenie in the French Open semis of this year.

Good luckl, Genie!
