Gabi Taylor put up a brave fight but her maiden senior Wimbledon outing ended in a three-set defeat to Eugenie Bouchard.

The 20-year-old, who was handed a wild card into the main draw, was beaten 6-0 4-6 6-3 by the 2014 finalist.

Southampton-born Taylor endured a torrid first set against Bouchard, which she lost without winning a game in only 21 minutes.

To her credit, the British number six, ranked at 180, restored some pride in the second set by claiming a crucial break at 4-3 and then serving it out.

Bouchard, who secured her main-draw place at Roehampton last week, shook off her wobble and won the decider in convincing fashion.
