CHARLESTON: Canadian starlet Eugenie Bouchard admitted it was “a bit ugly” as she held off former world number one Venus Williams 7-6 (8/6), 2-6, 6-4 to reach the Family Circle Cup quarterfinals on Thursday (Friday in Manila). Bouchard, an Australian Open semifinalist who is seeded sixth in the green claycourt WTA premier level event, saved two set points in the first-set tiebreaker, and rallied from a break down in the third to advance to a meeting with second-seeded Serbian Jelena Jankovic.
