Second Serve


Canada's top players played against each other on a river barge in a fun promotional event for the upcoming Rogers Cup tournaments.

ATP: 14-year-old Canadian is Youngest Winner of Main Draw Challenger Match

Eugenie Bouchard and Milos Raonic hit on an impromptu barge on Toronto's harbour to promote the Mini Rogers Cup, a children's event during the upcoming pro tournament.

Both Canadians then talked about their up and down seasons, especially Bouchard, who crashed out of Wimbledon and Roland Garros in the first round this year after reaching the last four at Paris and the final of Wimbledon in 2014.

Raonic, who missed the French Open with a foot injury, lost in the third round of Wimbledon to Nick Kyrgios.

“It’s tough to asess,” Raonic said about his season so far. “Three of the seven big tournaments I’ve played healthy and I’ve done pretty well in them. It’s hard to really judge it. I think my numbers, my ranking, will say everything at the end of the year.”

Bouchard has suffered the tougher season. She's only won eight times all year and often been a first-round loser in most events she's entered. Despite it all, Bouchard is trying to stay positive despite enduring tough criticism.

“It’s been interesting for me to see how when I started doing well, everyone jumped on the bandwagon, building me up so much, and (now) to see how they break up down so much,” Bouchard, now currently ranked outside the top 20, said.

“I just separate myself from that. I know what I do and I know what I believe in. It’s hard not to see it or hear it, but to just give it some distance to not really worry about it," Bouchard added.

Both players are expected to compete in the joint Rogers Cup events in Canada this summer with the ATP Tour visiting Montreal while the WTA heads to Toronto.
