Who saw this coming?

In an absolute stunner, Eugenie Bouchard was ousted from the Rogers Cup in Montreal on Tuesday to American qualifier Shelby Rogers.

But it wasn’t just the loss; it was the way in which Bouchard was bounced.

Losing is one thing, but Bouchard was blasted 6-0, 2-6, 6-0 — to the 113th-ranked woman.

It go so bad that at one point, TV mikes picked up Bouchard telling her coach Nick Saviano that she wanted to "leave the court." 

So what happened?
