NEW YORK -- Eugenie Bouchard needs put her hardcourt struggles behind her if she wants to make another deep Grand Slam. A 59-minute dismantling of Olga Govortsova in the first round of the U.S. Open will certainly go a long way. Bouchard, the womens seventh seed from Westmount, Que., steamrolled her way into the second round at Flushing Meadows with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Govortsova on Tuesday. She produced 19 winners and broke on four of six chances against her 117th-ranked Belarusian opponent, whom she also beat two years ago on hardcourt in Washington. "Its definitely never easy in the first round of a Grand Slam, so Im happy to get a win under my belt," said the Wimbledon finalist. "I want to get on a roll and keep the momentum going." Bouchard, the only woman to reach the semifinals of all three previous Grand Slams this season, defended all three break points she faced while converting four of six break-point chances against Govortsova. After failing to convert two break points in the fourth game of the first set, Bouchard won four straight games to take the set 6-2. Two more breaks put Bouchard up 2-0 and 5-1 in the second set, then she finished Govortsova off on her first match point when the Belarusian hit the net. Bouchard has excelled at Grand Slam events this season, but has struggled on the hardcourt this season winning just one match over three events leading up to the U.S. Open. "The past few weeks have been a bit of a struggle. I dont feel like Im putting too many high expectations on myself," Bouchard said. "I have the inner confidence that I know if Im playing as well as I know I can that I can do well. "I dont want to set a specific goal to reach a certain round, because every round is so tough here. I always know that I can do well." Bouchard, playing the U.S. Open for the second time after winning a round in her 2013 debut, will next play Romanias Sorana Cirstea. She said that she has put in extra time training in New York after recovering form a hamstring injury which limited her at her previous event in New Haven last week. "I hurt it during a practice a few days before the event, and really cut down on practise before the event," she said. "I didnt feel so good on the match court. "Since then we taped it, the injury is something that healed pretty quickly, so I was happy. The past five days, six days or so have been great. I really put in a lot of hours of practice here in New York City. I feel like its something I needed."

The school had refused to comment on The Columbus Dispatch report but cancelled scheduled interviews Tuesday for the fifth-ranked Buckeyes. School spokesman Jerry Emig did not say if Miller had medical tests or confirm Miller was hurt. The reigning two-time Big Ten offensive player of the year injured his right shoulder on a simple throw Monday afternoon, the Dispatch said. The senior and three-year starter had first hurt the shoulder in the Orange Bowl. He had surgery that prevented him from contact in spring practice and was held out of several practices and scrimmages in August. Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett is Millers top backup and, if Miller is unable to play, would likely be the starter when the Buckeyes open the season on Aug. 30 against Navy at Baltimore. Coach Urban Meyer said Saturday that redshirt sophomore Cardale Jones is the third-team quarterback. Miller is one of the Big Tens most decorated quarterbacks, and the falloff in experience to Barrett and Jones is huge. Miller has thrown 666 passes in his glittering three-year career, starting as a freshman. Barrett has never played in a game, and Jones has thrown only two passes. Miller has also run for 32 touchdowns and passed for 52, putting him in reach of many of Ohio States career records for quarterbacks. Jones has run for one touchdown and has never thrown for one. Barrett was an acclaimed recruit out of Wichita Falls, Texas, who watched with Jones last year as Miller took most of the snaps in the Buckeyes 12-2 season. When Miller was hurt for most of the San Diego State, California and Florida A&M games with a sprained knee, senior Kenny Guiton had big games while leading Ohio State to victories. But Guiton graduated and the Buckeyes might have to adapt on the fly. Making that even more difficult is that Ohio State is without four of its five starting offensive linemen, its leading receiver (Corey Brown) and 1,500-yyard rusher Carlos Hyde from last years team.dddddddddddd Miller missed most of his senior season at high school in Huber Heights, Ohio, and has frequently been sidelined with injuries at Ohio State. As a freshman, he sprained an ankle against Nebraska -- a game in which the Buckeyes built a big lead but blew it -- but was able to play in subsequent games. Two years ago, he missed time during the game at Michigan State when he fell into an equipment case on the sideline, and later in the game hyperextended his left knee. He was hit hard by Purdues Josh Johnson later in the season and missed the rest of that game, with Guiton leading a stirring march in the final minute for a touchdown and the tying two-point conversion. The Buckeyes won in overtime. Last season, he sprained a knee early in the San Diego State game and missed the rest of that game and the next two, with Guiton filling in. Then he partially tore the labrum in his right shoulder on the first possession against Clemson in the Orange Bowl. He played the rest of the game. When the injury was discovered later, he had surgery in February. Ohio State said at the time that Miller had "minor, outpatient surgery." But he has had problems with the shoulder since. Still, he has repeatedly said he would be ready to go in the opener, and did so again between practices Monday. His workload had been reduced to avoid any ongoing soreness in the arm. Meyer said last week some pain was expected from routine throwing in practice. "I anticipated this," Meyer said. "Ive dealt with guys with arm issues before, and were being very cautious. He could have practiced (in one of the workouts in which he didnt play), but were in it for the long haul. So hes right on schedule." At the Buckeyes media day last week, Miller said his arm felt good and he was able to throw as much as he liked. "After my rehab, I was throwing to guys at least four days out of the week," he said. "Our timing and our situationwise, when I get back in there itll be like I never left."
