Marie Bouzkova is definitely the big surprise of this Rogers Cup in Toronto.
The 21-year-old from the Czech Republic started her run in Canada from the qualifications to reach the semifinals without dropping a single set on the way also after she faced 3 slam champions (Sloane Stephens, Jelena Ostapenko, and Simona Halep).
Marie’s live rankings
The Czech is rising so fast that she gained 38 places in the live rankings to be no.53. If the youngster keeps her run to win a stunning title in Toronto she will be ranked no.34. However, before she needs to face an in-form Serena Williams, and that is not easy for anyone.
Bouzkova about playing against Serena Williams
Marie doesn’t conceal her exciting for playing the American legend in the final 4 to comment:
“Serena has been my role model growing up. The way I play, you know, my technique, you know, is little bit, you know, the backhand is little bit similar to hers. I’m just going to try to enjoy as much as I can tomorrow and put up a fight.”
