Former finalist Bouchard's Wimbledon run ends in second round

The 17th seeded struck nine aces and was broken just once in fighting back from 5-3 down in the second set to seal victory in a tick over an hour and a half.

"It was a couple tough games". It was his first win at Wimbledon after Shapovalov dropped his debut at the grass-court Grand Slam previous year.

Samantha Stosur is "bummed out" by her exit from Wimbledon but confident her recent run on grass can benefit her during the upcoming hard-court season.

"It's going to be another tricky match", Shapovalov said.

"I didn't have to save match points (like at Roland Garros) and I haven't been down like three breaks".

In the first set, our tennis player did not allow the opponent to take a single game.

"I just have to look over the match again and do some brainstorming, find out why this keeps happening", he added.

The former world No.1 junior went close in Paris, bundled out in round two of last month's French Open, and gets another chance on Saturday against unseeded Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich. I saw a lot of Canadian flags.

"(But) I'm still trying to get to second weeks", said the world No.26.

The teams then went back and forth in regulation, and neither could find the victor , sending the game into extra time. It was a match that, frankly, was pretty boring for the first 30 minutes.

No. 13 seed Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont, faces Dennis Novak of Austria in the third round on Friday. "I really want to raise my level and try and play my best tennis against her and see what happens", Bouchard said of the Australian. "I think she has a great game for grass".

"I think she's playing great", Bouchard said of Barty.

The 19-year-old Shapovalov, of Richmond Hill, Ont., came into Wimbledon having lost three of his past four matches.

Ashleigh Barty dispatched former finalist Eugenie Bouchard while Daria Gavrilova won an all-Australian battle against Sam Stosur to progress to the third round at Wimbledon on day four. I feel a little bit more like myself. I feel like immediately it really helped me transition to the pros.

"I feel a lot more comfortable on the court".

It was a better day for Ottawa's Gabriela Dabrowski.

Barty accounted for Bouchard in straight sets, 6-4 7-5, in a hard-fought encounter against the Canadian.

Meanwhile, Vasek Pospisil of Vancouver lost 6-4, 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 to Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan in a first-round men's match on Tuesday. The 24-year-old is now ranked 188th.
