McGill expert: Bouchard's defeat

Published: 6 August 2014
''Eugenie Bouchard's homecoming turned into a power shortage on and off the court.

The rising star from Westmount, Que., perhaps crushed by the fame that her success in grand slam tournaments this year loaded upon her 20-year-old shoulders, fell 6-0, 2-6, 6-0 to unheralded American Shelby Rogers in the second round of the US$2.44 million women's Rogers Cup on Tuesday night.''
