Raonic and Bouchard

The knives come out against two of Canada's rising tennis stars.

She was outplayed. And she's a bit of a drama queen, don't you think? Just setting up the excuses, which she continued to propogate later when she said she had no expectations for the U.S. Open.


What's happened to all her supposed focus and toughness and all that we heard about early this season when she was having success? Let's get real here; she has not beaten a high-ranked opponent, has benefited from the way draws have broken for her (though granted, one can only play the person in front of you) and of late continues to lose to lower-seeded players. She is not, at least not yet, as good as her ranking would suggest.
