Eugenie Bouchard has been one of the top Canadian tennis players over the last decade. She was a player to watch out for after her tremendous success on the junior circuit. Bouchard translated that form early on in her senior career. In 2014, she reached the Wimbledon final before going down tamely against Petra Kvitova in the summit clash.
