Eugenie Bouchard Reaches Wimbledon Final

Eugenie Bouchard Reaches Wimbledon Final

THE GUARDIAN – Considering she had just reached the Wimbledon final, at the age of 20, in only her sixth grand slam, after fluffing five, nerve-shredding match points, Eugenie Bouchard’s reaction was curiously restrained on Thursday afternoon.

Not for her Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s unhinged victory jig or even Nick Kyrgios’s “juicy wiggle” that he put down after beating Rafa Nadal.

Instead Bouchard, a Canadian, opted for a dignified wave that was in keeping with her aristocratic nomenclature – she is, now famously, named after the daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York – but was incongruous next to what she had achieved with a 7-6, 6-2 victory over the No3 seed, Simona Halep.
