WHY IS EUGENIE BOUCHARD FAMOUS?
Eugenie Bouchard (born February 25, 1994) is a Canadian professional tennis player who is currently ranked no. 51 in the world. At the 2014 Wimbledon Championships, Bouchard became the first Canadian-born player representing Canada to reach the finals of a Grand Slam in singles, finishing runner-up to Petra Kvitová. She also reached the semifinals of the 2014 Australian Open and 2014 French Open, and won the 2012 Wimbledon girls’ title. Following the end of the 2013 WTA Tour, she was named WTA Newcomer of the Year. The next year, Bouchard received the WTA Most Improved Player award for the 2014 season.
Since her big breakthrough in 2013, Bouchard has become one of the most buzzed-about names in sports. Last year, the rising Canadian tennis star was a runner-up at Wimbledon and signed endorsement deals with some of the biggest brands in the universe. Not too shabby — for a 21-year-old. What’s next? It’s her serve.
