LONDON — Eugenie Bouchard’s four-match winning streak is over — and so is the Canadian’s run at Wimbledon.
The 24-year-old native of Westmount, Que., lost 6-4, 7-5 to No. 17 seed Ashleigh Barty of Australia in the second round of the grass-court major on Thursday.
Bouchard, won three qualifying matches to get into the main draw after seeing her ranking tumble to No. 188, led 5-2 in the second set against Barty and had one set point, but couldn’t pull it off.
Bouchard converted on just one of her six break-point opportunities, while Barty was good on three of seven.
The match featured two previous winners of the Wimbledon girls’ title — Barty captured the crown in 2011, a feat matched by Bouchard a year later.
Bouchard went on to reach the Wimbledon women’s final in 2014, while Barty hadn’t won a match in the main draw until this year.
No. 26 seed Denis Shapovalov of Richmond Hill, Ont., was scheduled to play a second-round men’s match against Benoit Paire of France later Thursday.
No. 13 seed Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont, faces Dennis Novak of Austria in the third round on Friday.
Meanwhile, Vancouver’s Vasek Pospisil and American partner Ryan Harrison lost 6-4, 7-6 (8), 6-2 against the German duo of Philipp Petzschner and Tim Puetz in a first-round men’s doubles match on Thursday.
