Too bad for Bouchard. I thought she was pretty impressive even in losing.

She is making quite a name for herself.

Looks like experience won out.

Good for Bouchard for going as far as she did in consecutive Grand Slams.

Today was a perfect example of a lack of experience.
Bright future though...she has all the ingredients of a top 10 player for years to come.
No where to go but up for this fierce competitor.

Bump, both Milos and Gigi (I think that's what they call her now) off to the 4th round, Bouchard avoids Williams because she whined about choking. And Milos look ridiculous in his match.

Great Wimbledon for Canada.

Bouchard is a beast, great match today. Watching her and her ability already, to think she'll even get better.

She's no beast. She's a beauty. Take that either way you want.

everytime she plays there should be an update on what she is wearing, preferably a pic, some people here, myself included, are tennis fashion aficionados and like to get and idea of what the athletes are wearing

This chick has the tools and the mental ferocity to bring a grand slam title to Canada. I believe it.

good timing too as parody in the women's game is at an all time high

Bouchard did win the Junior Wimbledon title 2 yrs ago. That was when I started to follow her.

I'd say Borg/McEnroe/Connors/Lendl in the late 70s early 80s match Federer/Djokovic/Nadal/Murray.

The patriot in me is cheering for Bouchard.
lol. Similarly I despised the Sampras-Courier dead tennis era and completely lost interest in watching the sport after that. No doubt that tennis played today is easier on the eyes.

Anyone else need to watch Sharapova on mute because of her shrill screams every strike? She might be Genie's quarters opponent. Sharapova vs Kerber today.

I once heard a montage of female tennis grunters. It sounded like a porno movie (that's not a good thing). I couldn't watch Sharapova play somebody last week because they were both such loud grunters.

I don't understand your logic.

Kerber is beating Sharapova right now. Better for Eugenie as she has beaten Kerber before. Saw that match against Sharapova in the semi-finals at the French. Sharapova showed patience to pick apart Eugenie's game. I fear a rematch would be a quick win for Sharapova.

That's excellent. Eugenie has a real shot at beating Kerber.

What an absolutely excellent year for her. A better year than any Canadian has had for the entirety of a career.

And she'll still likely get better.

Raonic is looking great today too. One game to win, on serve. Another game for Milos?

Bouchard crushed Kerber at the French Open last month 6-1,6-2. I think she's playing even better now than she was then.



Anybody know if there's some kind of connection between Jim Parsons and Eugenie Bouchard? He's been at her last two matches and seemed to be sitting with her people. I haven't seen him at any other matches. I didn't know he was a sports fan.

Don't know what the connection would be. He's out and has had the same partner for about a decade. Maybe he's just a tennis fan into players named after British royalty?

I know there isn't a romantic connection. I'm not sure but I suspect that was his partner he was sitting with too. Perhaps he is just a tennis fan into players named after Britsh royalty after all. I just found it curious that he was at her last two matches cheering her on and appearing to be sitting with the people in her camp. I wondered if he was just a fan or if the two of them know each other somehow. That's why I posed the question.

I was just being foolish.

Maybe Parsons and/or his partner are big tennis fans? She is definitely a rising star and someone worth following even for non-Canucks.
