Eugenie Bouchard saved her best form for the biggest events in 2014, with Grand Slam success keying her qualification for Singapore, most notably becoming the first Canadian to reach a Grand Slam final at Wimbledon.
"I think it's a tough road to try to become as good as I want to be no matter what," Bouchard said. "I'm not going to win every single time. I think this was a good experience for me, my first Slam final.
"I'm going to learn a lot from this and hopefully use it to get much better."
While strong showings at the majors - she also reached the semifinals at the Australian and French Opens - provided the backbone for Bouchard's Singapore quest, there were impressive results elsewhere, including a semifinal outing in Charleston, her first WTA title in Nürnberg and a runner-up showing in Wuhan.
Bouchard scored wins over elite players throughout the season, compiling six Top 10 wins and her first Top 5 win, that coming over World No.3 Simona Halep in the Wimbledon semifinals.
