Eugenie Bouchard advances to second round of French Open

via Montreal Gazette

PARIS — Eugenie Bouchard is through to the second round of the French Open after posting a comeback 2-6, 6-3, 6-2 over Japan’s Risa Ozaki on Tuesday.

Bouchard, a semifinalist at Roland Garros in 2014, came back form a disastrous first set by dominating the next two. The native of Westmount was particularly strong in the third when she fired three aces, broke Ozaki on two of four attempts and held the final game to love.

The Canadian had fallen into a hole after a first set in which she committed 24 unforced errors and saved just one of the four break points she faced.

Bouchard next faces 17th-seed Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia. Bouchard and Sevastova faced each other twice last year, with each player coming away with a win. Their second-round match in Paris will be their first ever meeting on clay.
