For the first time since 1984, a Canadian woman is playing in the semi-finals of a major tennis tournament.

Eugenie Bouchard, ranked 30th, advanced to the final four at the Australian Open by beating 14th seed Ana Ivanovic 5-7, 7-5, 6-2.

The last Canadian woman to make it into the semi-finals of a Grand Slam tournament was Carling Bassett at the 1984 U.S. Open.

Bouchard will now face the 4th seeded Li Na of China in the Semi-final.

    This is really great news for Canada.

    I am also surprised because of the big difference in specs:

    19 Years Old 127 lbs Eugenie Bouchard
    26 Years Old 152 lbs Ana Ivanovic

    For Bouchard to obtain such a hard shot, her form has to contribute at a high level.
    There could be a faster wear out that may not support her during the long run, compared to a more massive opponent. I don't know.
