Madrid Open 2017 Odds: Eugenie Bouchard Bests ‘Cheat’ Maria Sharapova

Canadian dynamo Eugenie Bouchard clinched one of the most significant victories of her career on Monday evening after she survived a mid-match comeback attempt to defeat Maria Sharapova 7-5 2-6 6-4.

The win was a very personal one for Bouchard, who had previously labelled Sharapova a “cheat” after she came back from a 15-month drug bad at the Stuttgart Open last month.

Following her latest win in Spain’s capital, Bouchard said:”I was inspired because I had a lot of players coming up to me privately, wishing me good luck. They were players I don’t normally speak to and I got a lot of texts from people in the tennis world that were just rooting for me. I wanted to do it for myself, but also for all these people.”

Despite her triumph, Bouchard remains a 25/1 (26.00) dark horse to prevail at the clay event, while Romania’s Simona Halep is a 3/1 (4.00) and soon-to-be world No. 1 Angelique Kerber comes in as a 5/1 (6.00) runner-up with the bookmakers.
