Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

Canadian Eugenie Bouchard has made history, beating Romanian Simona Halep 7-6 and 6-2 at Wimbledon today in the Ladies Semifinals to become the first Canadian to reach the Final of a Grand Slam in Tennis.

Bouchard has had an incredible year, reaching the semi-finals in both the Australian Open and French Open before her breakthrough to the Final at the All England Lawn and Tennis Club today.

Bouchard will now play Petra Kvitova in the Wimbledon Ladies Final on Saturday morning.  Kvitova is the 2011 Wimbledon Champion while Bouchard has had success at Wimbledon as well, winning the Girls Singles title in 2012.

Milos Raonic has a chance to join Bouchard in uncharted waters as he will face Roger Federer in the Gentlemen’s Semi Final on Friday.

Federer is a seven time champion at Wimbledon and has won 17 majors in his career. Federer has a 4-0 lieftime record versus Raonic.
