Canada’s Eugenie Bouchard ended her Wimbledon run in the third round Friday after being defeated by Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain. â¨The 19-year-old from Westmount, Que., who is ranked 66th in the world and coming off an upset win over Ana Ivanovic in the second round, couldn’t repeat last year’s success when she won the junior Wimbledon title.
Bouchard made 32 unforced errors in falling to 19th-seeded Suarez Navarro 7-5, 6-2 at the All England Club. â¨“I think it's been an OK week. I'm always very tough on myself. I always want to do better,” Bouchard said. “So disappointed with today. It'll just motivate me to work harder.
“(Suarez Navarro) definitely played really well, I thought. She was very consistent. She was being aggressive, more aggressive than me, so she was controlling the points.”â¨Though Canada’s chances for a singles victory at Wimbledon have ended, three Canadian men still have a chance in the doubles draw.
Toronto’s Daniel Nestor and Swedish partner Robert Linstedt reach the third round after defeating Argentina’s Eduardo Schwank and Horacio Zeballos 6-1, 7-5, 6-3. â¨Ottawa’s Jesse Levine and Vasek Pospisil of Vernon, B.C., also advanced after defeating Lukas Dlouhy of the Czech Republic and Rajeev Ram of the U.S.A. 6-2, 6-4, 6-1.
