Bouchard playing 2019 WTA Dubai Open.
Great news for Bouchard to get more ranking points in IW MD. Bouchard did well against Halep and she could be her in the 1st round... opponent again only this time she needs to win the match!
If Bouchard can get past Flipkens, Bouchard had a close match with Collins at the latter part of 2018. So Bouchard has a good chance to win against Collins if she can get a win over Flipkens ranked 33.2019 IW
Bouchard - Flipkens, to meet Collins
Flipkens runs a lot, versatile, but feasible .
Tom should check the spelling: it's Flipkens, not Flipkins. Now Bouchard, her we could call Flinkekin (for the Dutchies here).
As someone who follows Bouchard day in and out, you should be better informed (unless you post inaccurate information on purpose of course).Bouchard lost to Flipkens - 5-7, 6-3, 7-5 in a 2+ hour match! Bouchard had points to defend and now her ranking will drop to the 100s....again! Bouchard had her chances to win but screwed up on the critical points! It sort of laughable!
Just going by what Mary Carillio said in during the broadcast!As someone who follows Bouchard day in and out, you should be better informed (unless you post inaccurate information on purpose of course).
No, her ranking will not drop (not significantly anyway) because she had no points to defend from last year when she also folded 1R at IW. Her ranking movement after IW will be more dependent of what other players around her position will do. There are few players close by in the rankings that are still in the tournament that can push her further down few spots eventually.
She will eventually drop significantly after Wimbledon where she has 220 points to defend from qualifying and 1R. This unless of course you consider material few dozen points she got in between from winning few qualifying matches here and there in small tournaments and moving up and down few spots.
FWIW, last year she only got 3-digit points in 4 tournaments: Wimbledon (220), Gstaad (110), USO (220) and Luxembourg (256). Those are the major events to keep an eye on for significant ranking movement.
Bouchard lost 6-4, 0-6, 4-6!Ohh no not again. And a bagel in there.
The draws are obviously rigged. Bouchard could have taken out any player in the main draw, nevermind the qualifying draw that is beneath her even having to play in.Bouchard lost 6-4, 0-6, 4-6!
I sort of felt that all along but I don’t see how she continues to be matched up with Hibino in the bigger tournaments? How unlucky can Bouchard get to keep draw an opponent that has her number? That is a confident deflater for Bouchard! Looks like she going to be heading down in the ranking...again!
I am becoming fan of the 18 year old Bianca Andreescu! She reminds me of young Steffi Graf, Monica Sela, William Sisters just shooting her way up the rankings.
Especially the bottom level prize money is going to be difficult for her. Tennis is her only source of income, and I think most of it goes to take care of her family. Whatever is left mainly goes to her charitable foundation that provides lip gloss tips to the less fortunate.It seems like the rest of the year will be in 125 level WTA and in qualifying round tournaments of WTA tournaments. Bouchard needs to keep her ranking from dropping below the 95 ranking or she again faces the qualifying GS round tournaments. What a tough way to begin 2019 with doing qualifying rounds that have few points and bottom level prize money. Bouchard has points to defend too. Bouchard needs to get into the MD in order to defend her points or get into a MD tournament and get at least into the quarters of two Premier levels.
Stupid question. But how do you make money on Instagram.Bouchard continues her career likely losing money at this point from the tour BUT making a ton on the side off court. I had no clue she was as big as she is on Instagram and social media in general. Good for her making money but I don't see anyway back to the Top 20 or even Top 30 to be honest. She'll hover in the 60-100 range for a while before maybe she finally decides to retire.
Bianca's amazing run is going to obliterate Bouchard's already fading recognition and tennis canada has Felix coming up now on the men's side. Marino might well pass Eugenie this year too.

I think more like training hard to get go deep in the draw for Charleston. Bouchard has to do qualifying and then make it through that, to go three matches to avoid doing qualifying until late June-July where she had points to defend.More time on the beach for her!
Break from tennis pressure filled life is good! Bouchard has other options in her life too. She only 25 and a quite rich around the $259 million U.S. dollars. Why not enjoy it?
