At the 2014 Wimbledon Championships, "Genie" Bouchard became the first Canadian to reach the finals of a Grand Slam in singles, finishing runner-up to Petra Kvitová. She also reached the semifinals of the 2014 Australian Open and 2014 French Open, and won the 2012 Wimbledon girls' title.
Following the end of the 2013 WTA Tour, she was named WTA Newcomer of the Year. The next year, Bouchard received the WTA Most Improved Player award for the 2014 season and reached the world number 5 ranking, becoming the first Canadian female tennis player to do so. As of late, Genie Bouchard has been out of form and dropped out of the top-100. But at only 24 years old, that is destined to change
Bouchard plays very aggressive tennis and is known for hitting the ball early and rushing her opponent with a severely high groundstroke tempo. She will also make drastic and unpredictable changes in ball direction, which also causes many winners, as her opponents don't know where she's going.
