Canadian ace stumbles in Toronto

TORONTO, Canada (AFP) – Home support proved no help as Eugenie Bouchard’s struggles continued Tuesday with a straight-sets loss to qualifier Donna Vekic at the WTA hardcourt tournament in Toronto.

Croatia’s Vekic powered to a 6-3, 6-4 victory, to the disappointment of a partisan crowd whose vocal support couldn’t lift Bouchard.

The Canadian, who has just one match win since a second-round exit at the French Open, committed 32 unforced errors and seven double faults.

She was broken six times by the 21-year-old Vekic, who is in the main draw of this US Open tuneup for the first time.
In other early matches, 10th-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland continued her dominance of big-serving American CoCo Vandeweghe with a 6-3, 6-2 win.
