One and done for Genie Bouchard in Cincinnati.
Two of the top four seeds in the tournament went down to defeat Thursday at the Rogers Cup.
It wasn’t so much that Genie Bouchard lost Tuesday night. It was how she lost.
WIMBLEDON – There’s a good chance, if Milos Raonic looked ahead at all in the draw (they all say they don’t), that he expected Rafael Nadal on the other side of the net if he made the Wimbledon quarter-finals.
WIMBLEDON – If you want to beat Nadal, grass might still be the best place to do it.
It’s never an easy transition to grass, especially for the players who go deep into the second week at the French Open. But Milos Raonic struggled Wednesday in losing to Peter Gojowczyk of Germany.
PARIS – There probably weren’t that many tennis who actually expected Roger Federer to WIN the thing.
But still, his five-set loss to Ernests Gulbis Sunday still cast a pall over Roland Garros.
PARIS – They were slotted to meet in the third round, which always brings with it a lot of anticipation.
Who’d have thought neither Venus nor Serena Williams would make the date?
The storylines heading into next month’s French Open are getting more intriguing by the week.
For the second day in a row, Canadian Genie Bouchard suffered a dip in form in the second set, but prevailed in three over a former No. 1 player at the Family Circle Cup.
Another day, la-di-dah, another huge win for Genie Bouchard, who upset No. 2 seed Jelena Jankovic 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 Friday to reach the Family Circle Cup semifinals.
INDIAN WELLS, Calif. – For the third time in four meetings, Canadian Milos Raonic came away with a win over Great Britain’s Andy Murray.
This time, it was a fairly rare – by his estimation – comeback victory.
