Eugenie Bouchard to play Petra Kvitova in Wimbledon final

LONDON — Previously known as Wimbledon, the hallowed ground of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) officially was rebranded this week as Canada Place.

Eugenie Bouchard, a polished and aggressive 20-year-old from Montreal, Thursday became the first Canadian woman to make it to a Grand Slam final, thanks to her sturdy and efficient 7-6, 6-2 win over Romania’s Simona Halep. And Milos Raonic, a flamethrowing powerserver from southern Ontario, on Friday will face Swiss master craftsman Roger Federer in the men’s semifinals.
