After Andy Murray's shock early exit, and with no Laura Robson in sight due to a wrist injury, we Brits quickly needed someone to get behind ahead of the weekend's Wimbledon finals.

Cue Eugenie Bouchard, also known as Genie because she's just magic (we're guessing), the 20-year-old Canadian hopeful. Not only is she named after our very own princess but she's cuter than a wicker basket full of kittens and cheerier than a sunny Sunday morning.

Basically she's really hot and, even though she might have lost out to Petra Kvitová at the Wimbledon final on Saturday, we reckon she has what it takes to be the next ball-whacking sweetheart:

 

She definitely looks a bit like Anna Kournikova, especially with their mutual love of having lovely blonde plaits...

 

She has her own army of fans (the Genie Army), including random celebrities like Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory's Sheldon)...

 

She looks bloody adorable in a visor...

 

She's got that super-healthy angelic glow going on from the sheer amount of constant exercise and Evian-downing...

 

She has a twin. Oh yes, she has a twin.

OK, so Anna Kournikova isn't a twin, but science basically dictates that having one definitely makes you hotter.

We give it two weeks before snake-hipped Spanish crooners start appearing, trying to lure her into their music videos...
