At its first participation in the tournament of the Rogers Cup, Saying there is alley of fine efforts, including an exchange box spectacular that she was able to win at the end of arm in the first sleeve and that has raised the spectators of their seat.
Canada's top-ranked player was trod out in front of the media, solo style, at the Aviva Centre at York University, while the top eight players in the world were simply involved in media scrums.
Yes, Bouchard is still relevant to Canadians and to this tournament, but she might not be relevant much beyond that, having fallen on hard times and all the way down to No. 70 in the world after having, at one time, climbed as high as No. 5. "I think it's more about how well you deal with it".
"Every match I play I try to learn from it, and I try to improve on certain things", Andreescu said. "It's tough to get through tough matches when you're in a moment like that".
Bouchard was pressed following her Rogers Cup exit if she'd prefer fans and media ease up on her, noting she's still young enough to turn her career around.More news: Moscow mule copper mugs may be poisoning drinkers
It is now six consecutive tournaments where the player of 23 years was eliminated in his first game.
She lost her serve early in the second, and didn't win a game until she was down 5-0. "I want to kind of play free", said Bouchard, who has been inspired by some recent training sessions with the great Andre Agassi.
The crowd cheered as the last Canadian woman in the singles draw here walked off the court. Montreal's Francoise Abanda's was ousted Monday night.
Sure there have been some positives this season, such as beating Maria Sharapova in Madrid, but there have been far too many lows. "I had tactics how to play her but everyone has their days and today was her day, so congrats to her". I practiced with her a little bit last week in D.C., and I think she had a good run last week. "So, you know, someone else can carry the burden of Canada".
Bouchard, who made a name for herself when she reached the Wimbledon final in 2014 after two straight Grand Slam semifinal appearances, has failed to make it past the second round in five straight tournaments. "I watched her match at Wimbledon against (Johanna) Konta". You know she would love for it to happen. And I think it's important to feel the pressure of time a little bit, to get into action and not just relax and let years go by.
"This was a very nice experience to live in my young career, commented Saying in a press conference". The Canadian was a wild-card entry this week. Her best showing at a Rogers Cup came past year in Montreal, when she lost to Slovakia's Kristina Kucova in the third round.
