10 FACTS: EUGENIE BOUCHARD

Eugenie Bouchard looks to add a silver lining to a breakthrough campaign when she makes her debut at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global.


1) WTA Finals Debutante
Bouchard is one of two debutantes at the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global for the first time. The other is Simona Halep and they are the 147th and 148th players to appear at the event in its 44-year history.

2) Experience counts
In the past three decades, only three players have won the tournament on their first try: Serena Williams (2001), Maria Sharapova (2004) and Petra Kvitova (2011).

3) O Canada
The last Canadian to appear at the WTA Finals was Helen Kelesi, in 1989.

4) Big match player
Bouchard saved her best tennis in 2014 for the Grand Slams, finishing runner-up at Wimbledon and reaching the semifinals at the Australian and French Opens.

5) Fearless
Carrying on this theme of rising to the big occasion, Bouchard has six Top 10 wins under her belt this year.

6) Lion's share
Of the 4,494 points Bouchard has totted up since January, 3,100 have come at majors.

7) Undefeated
Bouchard is yet to taste defeat on an indoor court in 2014, winning four Fed Cup rubbers as well as her opening round match in Linz.

8) Fitness scare
Her time in Linz was cut short by a thigh injury, forcing her to withdraw from a second round clash with Tsvetana Pironkova.

9) Revival
After a post-Wimbledon dip in form, Bouchard was back with a bang in Wuhan, where she reached the final, only to lose to her nemesis, Petra Kvitova.

10) Final ranking
A good performance in Singapore could result in Bouchard breaking into the Top 3 for the first time in her career, while an early exit puts her current No.5 spot under threat from Ana Ivanovic, Caroline Wozniacki and Agnieszka Radwanska.
