After securing her first consecutive win since March, Eugenie Bouchard was relaxed and confident speaking with press at the US Open.

“It’s like a huge deal,” laughed Bouchard, about getting back where she’s much happier: into the third round of a Grand Slam.

Genie also spoke about the unique intimacy of playing on Grandstand in Flushing Meadows, where she admitted that, “I feel like I could touch someone and they could touch me, which would be really weird!”

Looking ahead to her third-round match against a former top-10 player in Dominika Cibulkova, the 21-year-old Canadian said she’s prepared for a battle: “I know she’s a really tough competitor. I’m really looking forward to it. I think it will be such a good fight.”
