Canadian Eugenie Bouchard is the WTA's newcomer of the year after reaching at least the quarter-finals five times in the 2013 season.

The 19-year-old Montreal native is ranked No. 32 in the world, tops among teenagers and Canadians. She reached her first WTA final in Osaka last month before losing to Samantha Stosur.

Bouchard beat Stosur earlier in the year, her first victory over an opponent ranked in the top 10. She also beat No. 10 Jelena Jankovic as part of an impressive year.
