(May 24, 2014) Eugenie Bouchard became just the second Canadian in the past 26 years to win a WTA title when she defeated Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 on Saturday to win the Nuremberg Cup to claim her first WTA title.

“This is kind of like a stepping stone for me. Winning a WTA title is of course a goal I’ve had, and I’m so happy to accomplish it, but I still want to achieve more – more titles, bigger titles – so this is a step in the right direction, and it’s part of the dream, but I want to move forward and keep going from here.”

Bouchard will next make her way to the French Open where she’ll face Shahar Peer in the first round.
