London • Eugenie Bouchard won the last four games to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals with a 7-6 (5), 7-5 win Monday over Alize Cornet.
Cornet, who upset Serena Williams in the third round, led 5-3 in the second set but lost her next two service games and the match.
Bouchard, who is the only woman this year to have advanced to the semifinals of both Grand Slam tournaments, will next face either 2004 champion Maria Sharapova or Angelique Kerber.
The 20-year-old Bouchard, a former junior champion at Wimbledon, is making her second appearance at the All England Club after reaching the third round in 2013.
