Eugenie Bouchard Wins Junior Tournament in Roehampton     

Milos Raonic (Thornhill, ON), the last remaining Canadian in contention in the singles draws at Wimbledon, completed his second round match on Wednesday after it was suspended on Tuesday night because of darkness in the middle of the third set.

Raonic was facing American Sam Querrey, who knocked out Vasek Pospisil (Vancouver, BC) in the opening round. The two players were even when play started again this morning and the match remained close until the end. Raonic and Querrey each won 153 points, but it was the American who came away with a 6-7(3), 7-6(7), 7-6(8), 6-4 win.

The 21-year-old Canadian has lost in the second round at Wimbledon each of the last two years after being forced to withdraw with a hip injury in 2011. Querrey will take on Marin Cilic of Croatia in the third round.

Raonic will continue his grass court season as he is scheduled to play the ATP World Tour 250 event in Newport which begins the week of July 9. Pospisil and Frank Dancevic (Niagara Falls, ON) are also entered in the tournament.

The best junior players in the world were preparing for Wimbledon this week at the AEGON Junior International, an ITF Grade 1 event in Roehampton. Seeded second in the tournament, Eugenie Bouchard (Westmount, QC) took home the girls singles title thanks to a 6-1, 1-6 et 6-3 victory over her compatriot Carol Zhao (Richmond Hill, ON) in the final. The Canadian girls were impressive in Roehampton as three of the four semifinalists were Canadian. Zhao defeated Françoise Abanda (Montréal, QC) in the semifinals.
