3 slams, 3 semis and also her 1st WTA title. It's shaping up to be a good year. The paper here had a piece on the front page this morning talking about her development and how she had played in a local Challenger tour event. Sadly, that event lost its title sponsor this year and is not being played this year.

Good start for Eugenie in this morning's semi against number 3 Halep - she won the first set in a tiebreaker and is now 1-1 in the 2nd set.

Wow - Eugenie Bouchard beats Halep 7-6, 6-2 to move on to the finals of Wimbledon against 6th ranked Petra Kvitova.

Good luck Eugenie! :)

Halep hurt her ankle during the 1st set tiebreak, I'm not sure how that effected her play for the rest of the match.

Three cheers for Genie!! :) :) :)  Simply superb!

She'll play against six-seeded Petra Kvitova on Saturday in the Women's Wimbledon final.

Way to go, Canada!

Probably somewhat.  But then, the tennis gods shone on Eugenie! :D

Know where I'll be Saturday morning. According to the WTA site, they've met once before. That was last year in Toronto during the 2nd round of the Rogers Cup. Kvitova won 6-3 6-2. The women play in Montreal this year so I'm sure Centre Court at Jerry Park will erupt for Genie. Even more so if she wins.

The H2H is a small sample size, but this and the 2012 Wimbledon junior title is clearly showing that grass is her best surface.

Tough loss, Bouchard was thoroughly dominated.

6-3, 6-0

Great effort by Genie, her confidence now will take her to the next level. We'll see her soon enough in the winners circle.

Way to go, Genie!  Even though she lost, she took the tennis world by storm here at Wimbledon.  Never before has Canada had such success as Bouchard has had in women's tennis.  The best is yet to come for Genie.
What a week!

A little disappointed at the result, but very happy that she made it to the final. This is only the beginning - I think we will see her being this competitive for years to come. :)
