WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Eugenie Bouchard became the first Canadian to win a junior Wimbledon title in singles by beating Elina Svitolina of Ukraine 6-2, 6-2 Saturday in the girls' final.
The 18-year-old Bouchard broke the third-seeded Svitolina's serve five times to wrap up the win in exactly 1 hour on Court 1.
The fifth-seeded Bouchard says "I'm really happy to have pulled through and I guess make Canada proud, and hopefully (I can) continue with more success like this."
Bouchard dropped only one set throughout the tournament, and has a chance to win the girls' doubles title with American teammate Taylor Townsend on Sunday.
Filip Peliwo can give Canada another title in the boys' singles final on Sunday, when he faces top-seeded Luke Saville of Australia.
