Ivanovic lacked the mental strength because she has everything else.

Canadian players tend to be late boomers, because they start being teached professionaly at a much later age. In Florida and some place in europe the kids get ridiculously good at a very young age

I love how Genie doesn't seem to give a ****! I admire her clamness, especially for a 19 y. o. I should take notes.

massive hold, Ana is obviously struggling a bit. I think a break could really mentally do her in here.

Players in women's tennis starts peaking at an older age now. Back in the day, they started being stars at 16-17... now it's more like 20.

I wonder if Ana is bothered by her groin. Time for Bouchard to start stretching the court more if that the case and make it hurt.

Back in the days female tennis was less competitive.

the real money comes from sponsoring.

Eugenie sounds like the most successful and popular female athlete from Quebec at the moment.

She definitely needs to make her move on the backline but I think it's her hip not groin

Exactly. I wonder if that "Bouchard is just another flash in the pan" poster saw how solid her game actually is before making such statements. She looks like she can go far.

I'm pretty sure Eugenie Bouchard from Westmount never had to care about money.

Not saying it's her case, but there are lots of poor people in Westmount
