Bouchard and Raoinc move on at US Open

August 29, 2014

Montreal, August 29, 2014 – On a windy day in New York, Eugenie Bouchard Westmount, QC) and Milos Raonic (Thornhill, ON)  played feature night session matches on the Arthur Ashe and Louis Armstrong stadium courts Thursday in Flushing Meadows, New York.

Raonic, seeded fifth in the tournament, took on Germany’s Peter Gojowczyk, whom he lost to in Halle earlier this year. After winning the first set in a tiebreak, Raonic lost serve twice in the second set to allow his opponent to level the match. It was a battle the rest of the way and the 23-year-old Canadian managed to pull out a tough four set win in tricky conditions 7-6(4), 5-7, 6-4, 7-6(3) after more than three hours of play. In Saturday’s third round, Raonic will face world no. 80 Victor Estrella Burgos of the Dominican Republic who earlier this week became the first player from his country to win a Grand Slam match.

After a comfortable first round win, Bouchard faced a stiffer test in round 2 going up against Sorana Cirstea of Romania, a finalist at last year’s Rogers Cup presented by National Bank, and former world no. 21. Bouchard raced through the first set and led 2-0 in the second and that’s when Cirstea mounted her comeback. She won the set in a tiebreak to force a decisive third. Bouchard was able to keep her composure to come away with a 6-2, 6-7(4), 6-4 victory. She will meet Barbora Zahlavova Strycova of the Czech Republic, the tournament’s no. 30 seed, in the next round.
