Eugenie Bouchard continues fine run while Garbine Muguruza crashes out
Eugenie Bouchard secured a stunning win over Carla Suarez Navarro at the Luxembourg Open, but Garbine Muguruza was sent packing.
Former Wimbledon runner-up Bouchard has struggled for form in the last two years and she secured her first win over a top 50 player in 14 months with a 6-1, 6-0 demolition of the third-seeded Suarez Navarro.

The 53-minute win earned the Canadian a quarter-final encounter against Andrea Petkovic after the German beat fifth seed Katerina Siniakova 6-2, 6-3.
Meanwhile, Muguruza’s patchy form continued as she was beaten by impressive teenager Dayana Yastremska.
The 18-year-old Yastremska came into the Luxembourg event on the back of winning her maiden WTA Tour singles title at the Hong Kong Tennis Open on Sunday.
And the world No 66 is into her second quarter-final in the space of a week after seeing off two-time Grand Slam winner Muguruza 6-2, 6-3.
That moment when you get the biggest win of your career!

Top seed Julia Goerges is safely into the quarter-final, where she will meet Donna Vekic, after as she claimed a 6-1, 6-4 win over Anna Blinkova.
