Genie Bouchard: I'm a bit low in confidence
He faces France's Adrian Mannarino. Bouchard won their only previous match against each other, a three-set victory in Shenzen a year ago.
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.
Unfortunately, her struggles continued Tuesday as she lost in the first round to Donna Vekic, 6-4, 6-2.
The last point of the game, Andreescu, who's known for her aggressive play from the baseline, sent a hard forehand into the net.
The Canadian, who has just one match win since a second-round exit at the French Open, committed 32 unforced errors and seven double faults. "I'm obviously a bit low in confidence right now", Bouchard said. It was unclear if the pair would be able to continue or if Francoise Abanda, perhaps Canada's next great tennis hope and a big fan of Williams, would ever get started in her match against Lucie Safarova.
As for how Bouchard feels about her age, just 23, and her chances of getting her career back on track, the Canadian has a mixture of feelings. She'll also be working to improve for her next opponent.
Moscow Mule Mugs Pose Health Risk
According to the state's alcoholic beverage division, the vodka-ginger beer-lime mixture can not be served in a solid copper mug. Fortunately for Moscow mule enthusiasts - there is a way to indulge in the beverage with the unique copper cup.
Bouchard broke Vekic for a 2-1 lead in the second set, but lost her next serve and bounced her racket off the ground in frustration.
The crowd cheered as the last Canadian woman in the singles draw here walked off the court. And I said, Sure. "I think (she and Branstein) really make a good team on and off the court, we get each other". I practiced with her a little bit last week in D.C., and I think she had a good run last week. "So someone else can carry the burden of Canada".
Not long afterward, the 23-year-old talent, whose rise upwards has for a long while now been sidetracked, was introduced to the crowd over the PA system of the tennis centre, just before seven-time grand slam victor Venus Williams was set to play her first match of the tournament.
Bouchard did not buy into that idea very much, saying, "I guess I'm relatively young, but I feel old in a way". You know she would love for it to happen. That would be the worst thing I could do.
"This was a very nice experience to live in my young career, commented Saying in a press conference".
The 21-year-old Vekic will face Grand Slam champion and No. 3 Angelique Kerber of Germany in the second round. And despite the fact she comes into this match as the underdog, as the teenaged wild card, you could see that Andreescu expects a lot of herself, the way she slapped her thigh after going down 0-4 in the second set, the way she talked to herself after missed shots. Her best showing at a Rogers Cup came previous year in Montreal, when she lost to Slovakia's Kristina Kucova in the third round.
