The back-and-forth match was a test for Bouchard, who saved five set points in the second set and seven overall. After dropping the first set, Golubic broke Bouchard in the third game of the second and built up a 5-2 lead. But the Swiss player double-faulted on her first set-point chance and couldn't find a way to extend the match to a third set. Bouchard also had troubles taking advantage of her opportunities.

French tennis player Benoit Paire left his composure in the locker room for his Citi Open match Tuesday.

Paire, ranked No. 55 in the world ATP rankings, threw a memorable tantrum in his three-set loss to Marcos Baghdatis at the hardcourt U.S. Open tuneup tournament Washington, D.C.

First, Paire's agitation started to show in the third set when he was down 4-2. After hitting the ball into the net to lose the next game (to fall behind 5-2), Paire became unhinged. He sat on the ground before furiously slamming his racket four times, ultimately breaking it. After he got up, he then threw the mangled racket near the middle of the court.
