Bouchard upsets McHale to move into 2nd round at Citi Open

Canada’s Eugenie Bouchard advanced to the second round of the Citi Open on Wednesday with a 7-6 (6), 6-0 win over eighth seed Christina McHale.

What appeared to be a tough matchup for Bouchard after a tightly contested first set unravelled, as Bouchard converted three of her six break point opportunities while not facing break point herself in the second set.

Bouchard, from Westmount, Que., wrapped up the match in one hour and 38 minutes to set up a second-round meeting with another American, Sloane Stephens.

Men’s third seed Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont., faced France’s Nicolas Mahut later Wednesday.

In women’s doubles action, Bianca Andreescu of Mississauga, Ont., and American partner Louisa Chirico defeated the American team of Kaitlyn Christian and Desirae Krawczyk 6-3, 7-6 (5).
