The day after a lacklustre performance that knocked her out of the Rogers Cup, Eugenie Bouchard was smiling again - for a photo shoot and selfies with fans.

Such is the life of Canada's tennis darling, who only had a few hours to digest a disappointing early exit from her hometown tournament.

After all, there are sponsors to please, and autographs to sign.

Crowds mobbed the world's No. 8 player Wednesday afternoon at the Rogers Cup apparel tent where she signed rackets, oversized balls and even a picture of a fan's dog.

She also posed for photos with the Genie Army, six Australians who travelled halfway around the world to watch a run that ended after just one match.

While the army of Aussies plans to remain stationed in Montreal to catch compatriot Samatha Stosur and other stars, Bouchard will turn her attention to next week's U.S. Open tuneup tourney in Cincinnati.
