While she's making history in the singles bracket, Eugenie Bouchard's doubles run at the Australian Open has come to an end.
Bouchard and her partner, Russia's Vera Dushevina, were up against the 6th-ranked dup of Cara Black (Zimbabwe) and India's Sania Mirza. The Canadian and Russian knew they were in tough and on the court, it showed as Bouchard and Dushevina bowed out in straight sets 6-4, 6-3.
After winning their first two matches in straight sets, Bouchard and Dushevina didn't have what it took to get into the quarter-finals as the tandem of Black and Mirza were simply too much on this day.
As for what happened on the men's side, Canadian Daniel Nestor and his partner, Serbia's Nenad Zimonjic, were victorious in their third-round matchup by defeating the Polish duo of Mariusz Fyrstenburg and Marcin Matkowski 6-4, 6-7(5), 6-3. With the win, the 8th-seeded pair will take on the unseeded Australian team of Alex Bolt and Andrew Whittington in the quarters.
Nestor is also busy down under with the mixed doubles draw. He and France's Kristina Mladenovic won their matches in the first two rounds in straight sets. Now, they are on to the quarters where they will meet Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova and India's Leander Paes.
While Canada is largely focused on what Eugenie Bouchard has done in the singles bracket, many Canucks are just as intrigued with Daniel Nestor's run at the Aussie Open. Either way, it is shaping up to be quite the finish for the Canadian contingent down under.
