I must be honest, the first time I heard about Eugénie Bouchard I thought: well, another “new Sharapova” we will never hear of her again (remember the whole ‘Oudin is the next Henin’ ?) But how wrong I was! After having watched her semifinal against Maria Sharapova, I’m convinced she gonna win something big pretty soon.

Her backhand down the line is a beauty, her shot selection is something to work on, but with a little more experience she would have won in straight sets. Sharapova did not win the match, Bouchard lost it and that makes a big difference.
