Montreal - Canadian Eugenie Bouchard has received a wild card invitation into the WTA tournament in Montreal next month, one of the key hard court tune-ups for the US Open.

"Eugenie is currently showing great things and we hope that she can keep her momentum going in Montreal," tournament director Eugene Lapierre said in a statement on Friday.

"She gave fans a great show back in April when she got two important wins at the most recent Fed Cup tie. We cannot wait to see her in action at home once again."

Organizers said Bouchard would play on the opening day of main draw action, Monday, August 6.

Bouchard, 24, reached the semi-finals of the WTA tournament in Gstaad on Friday.
