Seventh seed Eugenie Bouchard’s quest to match her stellar 2014 record in Grand Slam tournaments started on a positive note: She beat Anna-Lena Friedsam of Germany 6-2, 6-4 Monday in the first round of the Australian Open. There were some sour faces captured throughout the match — but even those outside of her “Genie Army” of fans would likely admit she’s still Canada’s most adorable tennis player.

Last year, Bouchard advanced to the semifinals at three majors but lost in the Wimbledon final.

Take a look at Bouchard in action on Day 1 of the Australian Open in the gallery below:
