Eugenie Bouchard crowned Female Player of the Year by Tennis Canada
19 year old tennis sensation Eugenie Bouchard has been crowned as the Female Player of the Year by the governing body of the sport in Canada after the Westmount native produced consistent performances all through the season to become the highest ranked teenager in the world.

Eugenie Bouchard or Genie as she is liked to be called impressed one and all with her enormous amount of talent on the tour that saw her rise to No.32 in the official women’s rankings at the conclusion of the season in 2013. The year certainly turned out to be a successful one for the youngster as she became one of the few players who took a set off from the World No.1 Serena Williams and also got through her maiden WTA final in Osaka where she lost to the Aussie Samantha Stosur in a high quality encounter.

And, November has been a month of awards for her as a couple of days ago she was also chosen as the Newcomer of the Year by the WTA. She said: "It's great to be recognized with these awards for the first time. Two thousand and 13 was a great season for me with so many firsts and so many highlights that I will always remember. I learned a lot in my first full year on the tour. I'm working really hard in my off-season and can't wait for next year."

Michael S. Downey, president and CEO, Tennis Canada said: "Eugenie's career is just starting but what she has already accomplished in one short year on the WTA tour is very impressive. Her ceiling is so high, and Eugenie is so focused and determined to create even more success for herself and her country. She is well on her way to becoming a star not only in Canadian tennis but all over the world. Congratulations to Eugenie, and best of luck in what I'm sure will be an exciting 2014."
