Eugenie Bouchard is the first Canadian tennis player to reach the finals of the grand slam tour. She achieved this feat in the 2014 Wimbledon Championships. However, she had to settle for the runner-up trophy on that tour. Canadians immensely celebrate the player as she achieved a name in the tennis world without Canada being a tennis country.

Bouchard, herself, takes pride in being a Canadian and recently shared a hilarious video on Instagram about the stereotypes about the Canadian people.

Later on, fans highly anticipated her presence at Wimbledon where she has been a finalist once. In 2014, she became the first Canadian player to reach the finals of a grand slam tour. However, Petra Kvitova defeated her in the finals. This year, the player decided to sit out of the grass-court major. Wimbledon got stripped off of its ranking points and it would not have helped the player to gain any points.
