The young and beautiful Eugenie Bouchard sparkles on and off court
Watch out tennis players! We've got a fresh young talent whom you're going to have to fight to not fall in love with.
The blonde, bold, beautiful and funny Eugenie Bouchard, a 20-year-old Canadian, succeeded where Serena Williams failed as she beat Alize Cornet to reach the last eight of Wimbledon on a rainy Monday.
French Cornet caused a sensation on Saturday by removing five-time champion and pre-tournament favourite Williams, but the fresh-faced Bouchard proved to be made of sterner stuff as she edged to a 7-6(5) 7-5 victory.
Here are 7 fun facts about Eugenie Bouchard, who could be the next number one woman in tennis:
1. Bouchard is the first Canadian to reach the Wimbledon quarter-final.
To which she replied, "That's cool. I didn't know that. Another little historic thing for Canada."
2. She can wear anything and still looking amazing. And, has a sense of humour too.
