Bouchard gets 1st US Open victory since 2015
Eugenie Bouchard has won a match at the U.S. Open for the first time since 2015, the year she withdrew from the tournament after a fall left her with a concussion.
Bouchard had to go through qualifying to reach the main draw and moved into the second round by beating Harmony Tan of France 6-3, 6-1.
Canada’s Bouchard was the 2014 Wimbledon runner-up and reached No. 5 in the rankings. She’s now 137th.
In February, she reached a settlement in her lawsuit against the U.S. Tennis Association about her 2015 slip on a floor in the trainers’ room.
She lost in the U.S. Open’s first round in 2016 and 2017.
