Eugenie Bouchard took down Alizé Cornet in three sets to score her career-first victory at the Mutua Madrid Open, 6-4, 4-6, 6-1.
“I'm proud of myself, how I stepped up and I think played even better in the third set,” Bouchard said in her post-match press conference. “Alizé is such a fighter. She doesn't give you anything. It was a tough battle.
“It was my first match win in Madrid, so I'm very, very happy about that. Fourth time's a charm.”
