LONDON---A year ago at Wimbledon, Eugenie
Bouchard and Simona Halep met in a semifinal
showcasing two of tennis up-and-coming stars.
Bouchard was only 20, Halep 22. Bouchard won
that matchup to reach a Grand Slam final in the sixth
major tournament of her career, a month after Halep
was the runner-up at the French Open.
Back at the All England Club on Tuesday, both
women lost in the first round to opponents ranked
outside the top 100. For Bouchard, also a semifinalist
at the Australian Open and French Open in 2014, it
was the latest setback in a season full of them, includ-
ing 12 losses in her past 14 matches.
"It s been a huge learning process to have great
results and then have, you know, so much attention,
then have bad results. Just learning about the ups
and downs of life and tennis, how things won t always
go perfectly, like I expect them to," said Bouchard,
who said a torn abdominal muscle limited her practice
time leading into the match.
"I m always trying to keep the belief and stay true
to myself and do what I need to do to become as
good as I know I can be. So it s really just been kind
of eye-opening, a learning experience," she added,
resting her chin on her right hand, then added with
a laugh: "But I m good for the learning experience
to be over now."
Her 7--6 (3), 6--4 exit against 117th-ranked qualifier
Duan Ying-Ying of China made the 12th-seeded
Bouchard the first Wimbledon finalist to lose her
opening match at the grass-court Grand Slam tour-
nament the following year since Steffi Graf in 1994.
The No 3-seeded Halep was treated by a trainer
for a lost toenail late in the first set of what would
become a 5--7, 6--4, 6--3 defeat against 106th-ranked
Jana Cepelova of Slovakia.
"I knew it would be a difficult tournament for
me," Halep said, explaining that her confidence was
low because of poor recent results. "But I didn t
expect to lose in (the) first round."
Highly seeded players rarely do anticipate that sort
of quick departure, of course, and four past Wim-
bledon champions in action Tuesday all won in
straight sets as the sun, unobstructed by clouds,
brought the temperature to about 85 degrees.
Petra Kvitova, who beat Bouchard for the 2014
title, won 28 of 29 points on her serve --- a double-
fault in the final game was the lone blemish --- in
a 6--1, 6--0 victory over Kiki Bertens that required
all of 35 minutes.
The second-seeded Kvitova, who is from the Czech
Republic, said her parents made the trip for her first-
round match, but will be heading home right away.
"I have to say Sorry to them" for such a short
match Tuesday, Kvitova joked.
Seven-time champion Roger Federer, two-time
winner Rafael Nadal, and 2013 champion Andy Murray
also advanced easily to the second round.
Against Duan, Bouchard double-faulted ten times
and said her muscle problem, which was taped yes-
terday, didn t so much affect her strokes as it prevented
her from preparing properly. She pulled out of a
tuneup tournament at Eastbourne last week because
of the injury.
"Probably wouldn t have been smart to play here,
but I couldn t pass on Wimbledon," said Bouchard,
the only Canadian to reach a Grand Slam singles
final. "In my head, it was no question I was going
to play, even though I was advised not to. It s just
the way I am. It s so hard to be forced not to play
tennis, especially at Wimbledon."
Duan lost all four previous matches she d played
at majors, has never been past the quarterfinals at
any tour-level event and never before defeated anyone
ranked higher than 75th.
"I didn t know who she was," said Bouchard, who
went 19--4 in Slam matches last year but is now 4--3
in 2015 and will fall out of the top 20 in the rankings
