Eugenie Bouchard has been through the most incredible months of her fledgling career this season. The young Canadian was recently crowned as the junior Wimbledon champion, and will now get another taste of WTA main draw action after qualifying for this week’s Texas Tennis Open in Dallas.
Bouchard’s main draw experience will begin this evening with a first round match against world No. 79 Galina Voskoboeva. The Kazakh, unlike Bouchard, will be disappointed with how her year is panning out. The 27-year-old has been far from her best since May and has won just two matches since making her exit from the Mutua Madrid Open.
This upcoming contest could be an interesting one. Bouchard ranks over a hundred places below Voskoboeva, yet she appears to be a genuine threat based on recent results. We can expect big things from the Canadian over the next few years. Voskoboeva could be in for an uphill struggle tonight.
