Eugenie Bouchard advances to second career WTA final

Eugenie Bouchard advances to second career WTA final

By Callum Ng

Eugenie Bouchard has risen at least as high as her seed at the Nuremberg Cup, after winning her Friday semifinal over Italy’s Karin Knapp 6-4, 6-3.

The match required 1 hour and 29 minutes to complete.

The no. 2 seed Canadian went through Kazakhstan’s Yaroslava Shvedova 7-6(3), 7-6(6) in the quarters to make her third semi of the season. Bouchard also continued her success on clay. She made the semi of Family Circle Cup in April. In addition, Bouchard began 2014 by qualifying for the semi of the Australian Open, in that case on hard court.

Now, WTA no. 19 Bouchard will have a shot at her first WTA title in her second championship appearance. Last year, she was runner-up to Samantha Stosur in Osaka.

Earlier in the day the Czech Republic’s Karolina Pliskova upset tournament no. 4 seed Elina Svitolina by a score of 2-6, 6-1, 6-2. Bouchard will take on the world no. 64 Pliskova tomorrow.
