Transcript for Tennis' New 'It Girl' Takes Wimbledon by Storm
There's always stunning plays at wimbledon. Eugenie Bouchard is the star. And Lara is there with her story. Good morning. Good morning to you, Amy and Dan. And she is aggressive and fearless. Bouchard can no longer be called the next big thing. She has officially arrived. Two years ago, she was wimbledon's junior champion. She's now poised to take the whole thing. I'm a believer. At just 20 years old, genie Bouchard is taking wimbledon by storm. Many expected she would be a champion in the future. But it turns out, the time is now. Thursday, she was crushing her third-ranked opponent to qualify for her first grand slam final. I expect good results for this. It's a step in the right direction. Reporter: Now, the 13 seed is one step away from dinning the biggest title of them all. Thanks to her model good looks and smile, Bouchard is gracing magazine covers. And among her supporters, "The big bang's" Jim parsons. It turned into the wildest ride through the semifinals I can't even tell you. I seems only fitting that the breakthrough is happening at wimbledon. She and twin sister Beatrice were named after british royalty. Perhaps her name sake will be there. She has only been on the tour, I goes, for two years. And now, genie Bouchard is the first Canadian ever, man or woman, to make the finals here at wimbledon. That's tomorrow. Semifinals for the men. The old guard, if you will, versus the young guns. Federer, djokovic, and the two studs. Gregor Dimitrov and raonic, both 23-year-olds old. And I'll be back with more. I like how you say their games, Lara. She has the tennis voice. She has a lot of pull. She is a huge tennis fan. We have a lot to get to in weather across the northeast.
