Not much of a Montreal viewing party during Genie's Wimbledon final

Tennnis fans in the city where it all began for Eugenie Bouchard aren't discouraged by her loss in today's Wimbledon final.

About 100 people gathered this morning to watch the match at Montreal's Uniprix Stadium where the 20-year-old rising star honed her skills.

Alexia Dorais, 11, says watching Bouchard makes her excited to play more tennis herself.

Dorais, who watched the match with her father and brother, says Bouchard is just getting started and will hopefully have another shot at winning the tournament.

Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic beat Bouchard in today's final 6-3, 6-0.

But Bouchard's performance was still historic, she's the first Canadian to reach a Grand Slam singles final in the Open era.
