Genie Bouchard: I'm a bit low in confidence

Genie Bouchard

On triple match point, Shapovalov fired a serve that handcuffed Dutra Silva. American Sam Querrey avoided an upset, rallying to beat qualifier Vincent Millot of France 4-6, 7-6 (4), 7-5.

After the Quebec Francoise Abanda and Eugenie Bouchard, it was the turn of Ontario's Bianca Andreescu of admit defeated Tuesday evening on the central court.

And though she offered up a fairly simple fix to that problem - "win matches" - that's been easier said than done for Canada's top women's singles player lately.

Eugenie Bouchard has not crossed the first round at the Rogers Cup.

Canada, has liked what he has seen Andreescu, emphasizing that to play such matches on the centre court is part of his learning. I'm obviously a bit low in confidence right now.

Barbora Strycova came through a tough three set match against Australia's Daria Gavrilova, with the Czech player coming from a set down to win 4-6, 7-6, 6-3.

It is now six consecutive tournaments where the player of 23 years was eliminated in his first game. She also had 19 unforced errors to Vekic's 10.

Bouchard has better started the second set, giving a break to take the lead 2-1, but it has been unable to confirm it. "I want to kind of play free", said Bouchard, who has been inspired by some recent training sessions with the great Andre Agassi.

The athlete, 17-year-old native of Mississauga, suffered a setback in 6-4, 6-1 in front of the Hungarian Timea Babos, 55th player in the world. "I think (she and Branstein) really make a good team on and off the court, we get each other". "I practised with her a little bit last week in D.C. and she had a good run". You know, people just walked up and there were just so many huge differences.

Bouchard, who made a name for herself when she reached the Wimbledon final in 2014 after two straight Grand Slam semifinal appearances, has failed to make it past the second round in five straight tournaments. But I'm super grateful she asked.

Bouchard did not buy into that idea very much, saying, "I guess I'm relatively young, but I feel old in a way". And I think it's important to feel the pressure of time a little bit, to get into action, you know, and not just relax and let years go by. That would be the worst thing I could do.

"I love to try to put on a show for the crowd", Andreescu said shortly after the loss, referring to that long point. The 21-year-old Vekic, ranked 51st in the world, will face No. 3 seed Angelique Kerber in the second round.

Seeds Svitolina, Wozniacki and Radwanska were untroubled at the Premier tournament in Toronto on Tuesday, but Canadian star Bouchard was bundled out by Donna Vekic. Keys lost in the 2016 Rogers Cup final in Montreal to Halep.
