Eugenie Bouchard once again impressed by beating the higher-ranked Sara Errani at the Indian Wells Masters Sunday, by a score of 6-3 6-3.
Bouchard was broken in the first game of the match but then broke back twice and eventually served out the set at 6-3.
Bouchard, the 18th seed, took a 5-2 lead in the second set over the ninth seeded Italian only to be broken, as Errani showed some late fight to get to 5-3. Bouchard, however, soon prevailed for the third round upset.
