Quebec's Eugenie Bouchard makes big jump in WTA rankings
Quebec teen Eugenie Bouchard rocketed nearly 20 spots up the latest women's tennis rankings released Monday.
Bouchard is now in the top 100, going from 114th to 95th.
The 19-year-old Westmount, Que., native defeated Briton Laura Robson and 2011 U.S. Open champ Sam Stosur of Australia last week to reach the quarter-finals of the Family Circle Cup in Charleston, S.C.
Bouchard was eliminated in straight sets by Serbia's Jelena Jankovic, who would lose Sunday's final to American Serena Williams.
Bouchard, who had to qualify to earn a spot in the main draw, ended up taking home nearly $17,000 US for her week's work.
In her previous tournament Bouchard had defeated longtime Shahar Peer, a former Grand Slam finalist.
Bouchard is in her first full year on the pro circuit after winning Wimbledon in 2012 as a junior, the first Canadian ever to win a junior singles Slam.
The top 10 of the WTA rankings were unchanged on Monday. Williams sits atop the list, followed Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka.
