Osaka QR2: (3)Eugenie Bouchard def Daria Gavrilova 4-6 6-1 6-4!!

So happy about this win! Not so long ago Gavrilova was seen as the best hope in her age group and it's the 2nd time Genie beats her!

The last 2 sets were really strong for Genie! Specially on serve!

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!

Well, since Genie is ranked higher, it would have been an upset-- although Dasha almost pulled it off.

is coming for your towel, too.

Disappointing year for the top Russian teenagers, all in all...

Gavrilova seemed to be a rising star, but not so much anymore. However, I doubt she ever was considered the best hope in her age group, with Robson being around.

Well, she was the top player when she was 14, she used to defeat Robson without problems, and then Laura was her main rival, but her progression stalled a bit after that, she is a top junior player but her results are not what everybody expected.
And she became trapped between juniors and itfs, sometimes players don't know when it's the right time to left juniors.
But it's not late for her, she is young and she has potential

This was expected, and unusually close IMO
I can't believe Eugenie almost lost to Eri
She will struggle with Luksika
