LONDON - With each victory, she looks better and better - and her success at the All-England Club is no exception.
For those who were expecting another glorious run at a Grand Slam for Eugenie Bouchard, they have gotten exactly what they wanted to see - so far. On Wednesday, the Canadian was up against Germany's Angelique Kerber in Wimbledon's quarter-final and she did not disappoint, winning 6-3, 6-4.
With the win, the 20-year-old Bouchard advances to her third-straight Grand Slam semi-final, dating back to January's Australian Open. Bouchard also reached the final four at the French Open. However, this time around, the No. 13 seed is hoping that the third time will be the charm. Having bowed out in the semis in Melbourne and in Paris, Bouchard hopes that London will be her ticket to her first-ever Grand Slam final.
To get there, however, Bouchard will be in tough against Romania's Simona Halep.
Halep, the number-three seed, made short work of another German in the quarter-final, defeating Sabine Lisicki 6-4, 6-0.
Bouchard and Halep will square off on Thursday with a spot in Saturday's final at the All-England Club on the line.
