WTA Rising Star Of The Month: Bouchard
Published June 13, 2014 12:12
For that reason she has been voted WTA Rising Star Of The Month for May.
Bouchard became the second Canadian in the last 26 years to win a WTA title - since 1988, only she and Aleksandra Wozniak have done it (Wozniak won Stanford in 2008).
"This is kind of like a stepping stone for me. Winning a WTA title is of course a goal I've had, and I'm so happy to accomplish it, but I still want to achieve more - more titles, bigger titles - so this is a step in the right direction, and it's part of the dream, but I want to move forward and keep going from here."
Bouchard also jumped four spots to seventh place in the Road To Singapore leaderboard for the season-ending BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global.
