Eugenie Bouchard, the last Canadian remaining in singles contention at Wimbledon, saw her run come to an end on Friday in the third round.
Bouchard, who upset Ana Ivanovic, the tournament’s no. 12 seed, in the second round, took on world no. 18 Carla Suarez Navarro. The Spaniard jumped out to a quick 4-1 lead in the opening set and served for the set at 5-3, but Bouchard fought back to level at 5-5. The Canadian had chances to break in the eleventh game and held game points to take the first set into a tiebreak, but was unable to get the final point necessary and ultimately fell 7-5, 6-2 in 97 minutes. Bouchard is the first Canadian woman since Maureen Drake in 2002 to reach the third round at Wimbledon.
