MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) Eugenie Bouchard of Canada ended local hope Casey Dellacqua's Australian Open campaign with a 6-7 (5), 6-2, 6-0 win Sunday in the fourth round.

The 19-year-old Bouchard won 11 of the last 12 games to set up a quarterfinal against 2008 French Open champion Ana Ivanovic, who beat five-time champion and top-seeded Serena Williams in three sets earlier Sunday.

Bouchard, seeded 30th, is playing the Australian Open for the first time after making her inaugural appearances in majors last year, with the third round at Wimbledon her best previous result.
