      However, a head injury sustained after a reported fall in the locker room Friday night has forced her out of the doubles events on doctors orders.
      The 25th seed's fourth round singles match against Italy's Roberta Vinci is also in jeopardy with a decision on whether the tie will go ahead expected late Saturday.
      According to a statement on the U.S. Open website from tournament director, David Brewer, Bouchard's injury will "continued to be assessed by "on-site medical personnel at the U.S. Open."

      She had defeated Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia 7-6, 4-6, 6-3 in the singles Friday to reach the fourth round of a grand slam for the first time since January's Australian Open.
      Bouchard was eliminated from the French Open and Wimbledon singles events in the first round this year but had won back-to-back matches for the first time since March this week.

        The Frenchman, whose signature sweeping backhand has been one of the most eye-catching shots on the circuit for a number of years, breezed past Bernard Tomic of Australia 6-4, 6-3, 6-1.
