Canadian teenager Eugenie Bouchard picked up the biggest victory of her career at Wimbledon on Wednesday, beating 12th-seeded Ana Ivanovic, the 2008 French Open champion, 6-3, 6-3 to reach the third round. The 66th-ranked Bouchard, who is 19, won the girls' title at the All England Club a year ago. Playing in only her second Grand Slam tournament, Bouchard wound up on Centre Court on Wednesday, because her match against Ivanovic was moved there after second-seeded Victoria Azarenka withdrew with a knee injury, leaving a gap in the schedule. Already leading 5-3 in the first set, Bouchard took 12 of 13 points to close that set and go up a break in the second. In eight previous Wimbledon appearances, Ivanovic only once had failed to reach the third round.
