London: Eugenie Bouchard said she cherishes her 2012 Wimbledon junior title more than her maiden appearance in a Grand Slam final which ended in a rapid-fire 6-3, 6-0 humbling by Petra Kvitova.
The 20-year-old, the first Canadian to play in a Grand Slam singles final, suffered a brutal 55-minute dissection by the 2011 champion from the Czech Republic, temporarily denting her new-found status as the modern poster girl of the sport.
"I still think my junior title was better than this. I think winning a tournament without losing a match is always something special. That was a big moment for me," said the Montreal native.
