Bouchard: Pressure? What Pressure?
Eugenie Bouchard

LONDON, England - Two years ago, Eugenie Bouchard produced a nerveless display to defeat Elina Svitolina and lift the junior Wimbledon crown on No.1 Court.

She has carried this knack of performing on the big stage into the seniors, which has resulted in a meteoric rise up the tennis ladder. On Thursday afternoon she appears in a third successive Grand Slam semifinal, facing No.3 seed Simona Halep on Centre Court.

For all her technical and physical qualities, arguably the most impressive attribute in Bouchard's armory is her unflappable temperament on court. The Tennis Space spent a few minutes with the young Canadian to get her six-point guide to dealing with pressure.
