Eugenie Bouchard’s celebration at the end of the biggest win of her life was barely a celebration at all.

Never mind that she’s the first Canadian to advance to a Grand Slam final. Forget that this is Wimbledon, Bouchard’s favourite event.

In Bouchard’s camp, the mission is not yet accomplished — and won’t be unless she makes even more history in Saturday’s final by defeating No. 6 seed Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic in a scrumptious Breakfast at Wimbledon for Canadians.

As Bouchard said in her news conference on Friday, “I’m proud of what I accomplished, but the job is not over.”

Bouchard’s coach Nick Saviano, for one, wasn’t the least bit surprised to see the 20-year-old express little emotion following her semifinal win over Simona Halep on Thursday.

“She’s still in the middle of the tournament,” Saviano said in a phone interview on Friday. “She’s trying to be the best she can be and trying to do the best she can do. The tournament’s not over. At a later time, she’ll be able to appreciate (what she has accomplished).”

It was all business for Bouchard and Co. on Friday. Saviano and Bouchard hit the ball around and talked things over.

“The same basic routine,” Saviano said.

“The goal is not to win the match. The goal is to have her play as well as she can on every single point. The goal is to play Eugenie Bouchard tennis.”
