Eugenie Bouchard is back in a WTA semifinal for the first time in 18 months. The Canadian eased past Russian qualifier Veronika Kudermetova, 7-5, 6-0 on Friday to set up a last four clash with top-seeded Alizé Cornet.

Bouchard, ranked 146 this week, edged a pair of Swiss opponents to reach the quarterfinals earlier in the week. She took out Timea Bacsinszky, 4-6, 7-6(1), 6-4, in the first round, then defeated eighth-seeded Viktorija Golubic, 7-6(2), 7-6(7) in second-round action. Bouchard came into Wimbledon having won just three matches at tour-level all season--she has since won four.

Bouchard will bid for her first final since February 2016 when she faces Cornet on Saturday. The Canadian owns a 3-2 lifetime record against the Frenchwoman.

Cornet topped Sam Stosur on Friday, 6-4, 7-6(2).

Marketa Vondrousova will face Mandy Minella in the other semifinal. Vondrousova knocked off Russia’s Evgeniya Rodina 6-2, 6-3, while Minella walloped Sara Sorribes Tormo, 6-1, 6-2.
