Eugenie Bouchard - a star is born :) - Martina Navratilovas tweet on Tuesday morning (@Martina) Yes, the endorsement of one of the legends of womens tennis must mean that Eugenie Bouchard has truly arrived. The 19-year-olds trajectory from junior champion to WTA regular to seeded Grand Slam player to Australian Open semifinalist has been nothing short of amazing. And in making her run to the final four of the first major event of the 2014 season, the native of Westmount, Quebec is practically writing history with each victory. "You cant teach that, youre born with it," added ESPN analyst and tennis great Chris Evert. "The way she held herself together, the way she played in the clutch, nothing fazed her and thats a gift she has." When it comes to womens singles, Canadas two best performances have both come at the U.S. Open - and both more than two decades ago. Patricia Hy-Boulais advanced to the quarterfinals in 1992, while Carling Bassett made it to the semifinals there in 1984. In fact, Bassett still has the record of holding Canadas highest-ever singles ranking. She was No. 8 in the world early in 1985 after making four Grand Slam quarterfinals in the two years prior. With Bouchards victory over Ana Ivanovic on Monday, the Canadian is projected to rise from No. 31 into the worlds Top 20 in the first rankings after the Australian Open. Milos Raonic, who peaked at No. 10 last year, is already the highest-ranked mens player in Canadian history. Bouchards rapid rise, coupled with that of Raonic and Vasek Pospisil on the mens side, marks a new era of Canadian singles tennis that has never been seen before. Which isnt to ignore the career success of Torontos Daniel Nestor. Long ranked No. 1 in the world in doubles until recently, Nestor has won eight Grand Slam titles (including the career Slam) and an Olympic gold medal. But the glamour of singles has always kept Nestors achievements a step removed from the mainstream. Bouchards advancement to the last four in Melbourne is stunning mostly for how fast it happened. One year ago, she was playing qualifying matches in Melbourne and did not make the main draw. The summer before that, she was still a junior and captured both singles and doubles titles at Wimbledon. She made her Grand Slam debut at the 2013 French Open and has now made a semifinal is just her fourth major appearance - and her very first at the Australian Open. Bouchards rapid rise has brought new interest to a sport that has until recently, offered Canadians few opportunities to root on homegrown players at the highest levels of the game.

Young doubled and stole home in his latest surprising September performance and the Yankees beat AL East-leading Baltimore 3-2, ending the Orioles longest winning streak of the season at six. "Hes been really, really good," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Hes swinging the bat well and thats why he is in there." The Yankees won after being swept in a doubleheader Friday. New York stayed on the fringe of the wild-card race while Baltimores magic number for clinching the division remained at five. "Its a nice bounce-back win," Girardi said.

Coincidentally, Youngs picture was on some preprinted tickets Saturday night for the Mets home game against Washington at Citi Field. Young doubled during a three-run second off Miguel Gonzalez (9-8). Speedy Antoan Richardson followed with an RBI single and then took off for second, beating the throw by Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph while Young scampered home without a return toss. "If I put the ball in tagging area hes out and were not talking about it," Joseph said. "I just didnt execute. I threw it up the line a little bit. If I put it on the money, hes out. I didnt do my job and it cost us a run." Shane Greene (5-3) improved to 4-0 in seven road starts this season, including a victory at Camden Yards in July. He allowed two runs and seven hits, striking out nine in 5 1-3 innings. "I was just trying to make one pitch at a time," Greene said. "I felt like early my slider was good and I could throw it for a strike a little bit more. Its good to come away with a win, for sure." Orioles manager Buck Showalter was impressed the way Greene handled his powerful lineup that leads the league in homers.dddddddddddd. "Hes good. He was their minor league pitcher of the year," he said. "You can see why theyre so high on him. A lot of cutters, a lot of command, a lot of different looks. You can tell hes pitching with a lot of confidence." David Robertson earned his 36th save, retiring Nick Markakis on a grounder for the final out with a runner on third. Brian McCann stopped an for 0-12 skid with his 19th homer, a solo shot in the second. Gonzalez lost despite giving up just three hits in six innings. "The stretch weve had the last three games, we havent really swung the bat well," McCann said. "It was nice to get on the board. We just needed a win. At this point in the season, every win is a big win." Steve Pearce had two hits, including his 17th home run, for the Orioles. Adam Jones, Jimmy Paredes and Markakis also had two hits each. Nelson Cruz hit an RBI single in the Baltimore third. Pearce homered in the sixth. TRAINERS ROOM Orioles: SS J.J.
