Tebbutt: “Li Ends Bouchard’s AUSOPEN”

Eugenie Bouchard is nothing if not exceedingly ambitious. She is also constantly striving to improve and has said endless variations of, “I want to do better and to do more,” which she actually did say on Thursday following her 6-2, 6-4 loss to No. 4 seed Li Na in the Australian Open semifinals. But there was one moment after the match when the driven Bouchard finally seemed to actually give herself a pat on the back – well maybe half a pat. She was asked if she had exceeded her expectations considering that she was down a set point in the opening set of her first match against Chinese wild card Tang Hao Chen. “I wouldn’t say I exceeded my expectations,” she answered, “but I’m happy with how I did.”
