The only negative point IMo is In case she loses the final ( God forbid ) , Losing to Genie is extremely more frustrating than losing to Sharapova ,,
I think both would be very tough. Sharapova would be very tough because, well, it's Sharapova - the greatest competitor out there and someone who's won it before. But Bouchard would be very tough also. If she makes it to the final her confidence will be sky high because she has just beaten Sharapova. Plus Simona would be the favorite against a player who has been promoted by the WTA as "the next big thing." So the pressure on Simona would be enormous.
