Recent Wimbledon junior champ Eugenie Bouchard won her third straight title by defeating Stephanie Dubois in the women’s final of the $50,000 Granby Challenger on Sunday.

The 18-year-old from Westmount, Que., led 6-2, 5-2 before Dubois, who hails from Laval, Que., retired from the match. Dubois was the defending champion at the tournament.

Vasek Pospisil of Vernon, B.C., won the men’s title with a 7-6(2), 6-4 victory over Igor Sijsling of the Netherlands in a battle between the top two seeds on the men’s side.

It proved to be a Canadian sweep at this year’s Granby Challenger. Pospisil and Vancouver’s Philip Bester won the men’s doubles Saturday over Japan’s Yuichi Ito and Takuto Niki, 6-1. 6-2.

Toronto’s Sharon Fichman and Marie-Eve Pelletier of Repentigny, Que., defeated Japanese duo of Shuko Aoyama and Miki Miyamura 4-6, 7-5, 10-4 on the women’s side.

Bouchard became the first Canadian to capture a singles junior Slam with her Wimbledon victory. She also won the junior Wimbledon doubles title this year.
