Genie Bouchard through to quarter-finals in Auckland
24-year-old Canadian defeated Bibiane Schoofs in 2nd-round match
Canada's Eugenie Bouchard is off to the quarter-finals at the ASB Classic.
Ranked 87th in the world, the 24-year-old Bouchard missed a chance to win the first set with her serve, but battled back in the second and third sets to take out the 174th-ranked Schoofs.
Bouchard will face a much stiffer test in the quarter-finals as she meets No. 2 seed Julia Goerges of Germany.
The two have split a pair of three-set matches against each other, with Bouchard winning at the French Open in 2014 and Goerges prevailing last year on a hard court in Luxembourg.
Meanwhile, qualifier Bianca Andreescu, an 18-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., meets top seed Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark in a second-round match on Thursday.
