Eugenie Bouchard became the first Canadian to reach a Grand Slam final and now is set to face former champion Petra Kvitova in The Championship battle at the Center Court of the All England Club.

The 13th-seeded overpowered French Open finalist Simona Halep and remained on course of claiming her first major title. Bouchard hasn't dropped a set in the Wimbledon this year and defeated seeded players like Angelique Kerber and Alize Cornet.

Bouchard, after winning the semifinal match, said she was expecting a good result in the tournament after working hard for it. The 20-year-old insisted that her job is not finished yet, as she is yet to face Kvitova in the Big W final.

"You know, it's not like a surprise to me," said Bouchard. "I expect good results like this. So for me, I was like, 'OK, good. It's a step in the right direction. I get to play in the final.' I still have another match, so it's not a full celebration yet."

"I'm waiting for a big moment to go nuts," she said. "Of course, achieving a lifelong dream like winning a slam is very exciting to me. But you know I feel like my job is not done here, I'm still working. Today, I just felt very calm in general. I was proud of myself but I know I have another step."

The 2011 Wimbledon champion Kvitova edges Bouchard in head-to-head encounters, as she has beaten the top-ranked Canadian in their only clash last year. The Czech admitted that she will have to work hard for beating the 13th-seeded Canadian in the title match.

"I will just try my best out there," Kvitova said. "I know the feeling when you hold the trophy and I really want to win my second title here and I will do everything that I can."

"When I won here in 2011 I needed to change myself both on and off the court a little bit," she added. "I had to get used to the pressure. I won here quite young, and it was difficult for me to handle it."

"I'm still working on the mental side, that's something I really need. With my sports psychologist, it's nice to talk with someone who knows how I'm feeling before my match."
