By Mikey Traynor Updated

All eyes in the tennis world were on Madrid as Eugenie Bouchard took on Maria Sharapova in one of the most anticipated matches for a long, long time.

With Bouchard publicly blasting Sharapova and labelling her as a "cheater" in recent weeks after the doping revelations emerged about the Russian tennis star, there was a personal interest in this match, and we all know personal beef makes tennis that much better.

Bouchard took the first set 7-5 before Sharapova answered back with a dominant second set that she took 6-2. In the third and final set, it was Bouchard who came out on top as she claimed a 6-4 win, and you could tell how much it meant to her.

Both athletes shook hands, but you can see it was not the warmest of embraces... But wait for the look on Bouchard's face after.

She's delighted, as she should be.

The 3 hour classic will be remembered as one of the matches of the year, as it fully delivered on its promise and more.

Bouchard advances to face Angelique Kerber of Germany in the third round of the Madrid Open, but you that will have meant a lot to the Canadian.
