Driven teen Bouchard starts to fulfill her promise
Yahoo News - about 3 years
By Simon Cambers MELBOURNE (Reuters) - When Canada's Genie Bouchard won the junior Wimbledon title in 2012, it did not take long for her to be tipped as the next big thing in women's tennis. On Tuesday, the 19-year-old began to fulfill those prophecies when she beat Serbia's Ana Ivanovic 5-7 7-5 6-2 to become the first Canadian to reach the semi-finals of the Australian Open. Named after Princess Eugenie of York, seventh in line to the British throne, Bouchard exudes a calmness on the court way beyond her years, and is equally assured off it. "I think I'm pretty similar on (and off the court)," she told reporters after setting up a semi-final against Li Na of China.
