Bouchard in the main draw at Wimbledon

There will indeed be Quebec in the main draw for the women’s singles tournament at Wimbledon. But this is not what we think.

The WTA Circuit confirmed in a press release on Wednesday that Eugenie Bouchard, of Westmount, will walk into the All England Club’s lawn as part of the Grand Tournament from June 27 to July 10.

Bouchard, who has recovered from surgery on the right shoulder and has not participated in the women’s professional tour since March 2021 at the Monterrey Championships, was able to avoid the qualifying draw by virtue of her protected classification.

The 28-year-old recorded one of the best results of her career at Wimbledon, reaching the final in 2014. Bouchard has won only one professional tournament, the 2014 Nuremberg Championships.

The WTA also confirmed the participation of Ontarian Bianca Andreescu, the 2019 US Open champion, and British-Colombian Rebecca Marino, who ranked 109th in the world.

For her part, Kipker Leila Annie Fernandez will make a clear appearance in her absence after sustaining a right foot injury in last week’s French Open quarter-finals.

Elsewhere, French Open champion Iga Swiatek will be looking to continue her irresistible streak at Wimbledon, while former champions Garbine Muguruza, Simona Halep, Angelique Kerber and Petra Kvitova have confirmed their presence.

Swiatek, 21, currently has a winning streak of 35 games, and a tie with American Venus Williams is the longest of the century. His latest win allowed him to claim his second career title at Porte d’Auteuil last week. The Pole also won the junior title at Wimbledon in 2019.

Last year, Swiatek reached the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time in her career, losing in three sets to Tunisian Anas Jabeur.
