I Stand By Bouchard: Leader of the Genie Army, Ready to Rise and Conquer the World!

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?
I always think about this Ivan Brunetti comic-strip when I see your comments about Bouchards misery.

"My doctor told me I got cancer. I only got 30 days to live. Great! Now I don´t have to pay next month rent."

"The chemo will make me sick and I will puke whenever I try to eat. Great. I can save money on food and get that slim figure I always wanted!"

Etc.

It's kinda weird but from just a quick look you can see she has a fine sense of irony about her haters, saying herself she belong in kitchen, or come over to my insta and tell me I should work harder and start winning. Pretty + funny.

I think people can lose sense of perspective here. As tennis players we should all know how hard it is wining out petty little games on weekends. Try doing that full-time and retain your sense of self-worth self-purpose as soon as you start losing.
 
What's with the hate over in this thread?
https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/bouchard-to-take-break-from-tennis.641071/

Gotta admit must have been living under a rock but I don't know a lot about her tennis - what I do see is a beautiful girl who at 25 has achieved a lot and is bowing out to do something else, am I wrong?
She had some success and got arrogant. Look it up on the internet. Not shaking the hands of other players/ saying good luck etc. Got nothing to do with jealousy. People are hating on Sergiy Stakhovsky. That´s not because he is a simple minded homophobe. No, it´s because he is young-ish, VERY attractive, & successful. Right!

Like anyone else, people love or hate a person now a day based on one and only one recorded action that occurred in the heat of competition- not knowing if there is more substance behind it. Sometimes it does not pay to be a public figure and be judge by society on an emotional outcome that people read to much into and defines that person as overall a good or bad person.

Yes but it was not one action. It was several. I can imagine many of her comments about the cheating doping russian hwoore earned her alot of "haters" too.

Slim pickings for Canadian Fed Cup tie

By Stephanie Myles

World No. 23 Bianca Andreescu [was] expected to lead the charge for the Canadians in an important Fed Cup tie against the Czechs in Prostejov.

But Andreescu is pretty banged up after a career-making trip to Indian Wells and Miami. And she has a big spring clay-court season ahead as a top-25 player. So she can’t make the date.

But … who else will play?

Genie Bouchard’s status is unclear. She hasn’t played since losing in the first round of the Miami Open.

Françoise Abanda is out with a shoulder injury that has troubled her since January.

Rebecca Marino is about to play her fifth consecutive week in Japan. It would be asking a lot to quickly switch to clay in Europe, for her first Fed Cup singles tie since 2011.

Doubt Bouchard will play Fed Cup in this against the Czech. I think she just trying to figure her life out!

Article counters rumor that Bouchard is taking a break from tennis!


Fantastic news from Genie Bouchard that rejects the fact that she is taking an indeterminate break from tennis.

The Canadian was starting to have a sort of resurgence after reaching the quarters in Auckland and Newport, but after a disappointing Sunshine Double, she decided not to play in Monterrey and Bogota. According to reports from Tennis.Life,Genie wanted to take ” a break of undetermined length.” Therefore, she also didn’t enter the draws in Madrid and Rome, and her coaches were in a sort of “limbo.”

This also prompted speculations about a possible retirement also because of Genie’s flourishing “side career” as a model. According to the Canadian, that’s not true, and she will stay.

Eventually, Genie stepped in on the social media to clearly brand the fact that she will stay out of tennis to “get healthy” as fake news.”

I can assure you [] that it’s not fake news. Just because an athlete Tweets this, doesn’t mean it’s fact. And it’s just a small portion of the story.

Could It be that Genie just isn't a hard worker ?? she seem to be more into playing around and having fun and posing for the camara than working 120 % to become a better tennis player. could she be spoiled ? if she lost all her money, would she work hard again to become top 10 player ?

Coach, trainer gone as Bouchard break continues
by Stephanie Myles

The former world No. 5 and 2014 Wimbledon finalist parted ways with coach Michael Joyce Friday.
[...] trainer Scott Byrnes also is gone.
---
If Bouchard is still in rehab, there no need for a coach and trainer since she still healing up and try to get to 100% before a trainer and coach can begin building her tennis skills again. I think Bouchard is taking some vacation time now too! Maybe she will skip the clay and wait for the hard courts in June to begin her tennis tournament play again!

WHY do people keep bumping this thread about a mediocre player? People should be ashamed of themselves!

Ha all,

I have just found out that Bouchard will be playing Tsurenko L. (Ukr) today in the FO 1st round match. I totally did not follow Bouchard as qclosely as I thought, since I thought she will still doing other stuff! :)

To give Bouchard some slack, she was off the tennis for like 2 months so I guess it takes some time to get back in the “swing” of things!(y)

Lost to #27 rank player Tsurenko, a seeded player!

Except that people want her to be taken seriously as a Wimbledon finalist. While it's the same body, there is nothing to suggest that same player is anywhere near appearing.

So a decision needs to be made: is she a good looking girl who plays tennis, where losing to a seeded player is not a bad thing, or is she a slam finalist-level player who should be going deep in most tournaments? After all, if she was the latter, she would have had a protected ranking that would have helped avoid a matchup such as this in R1. But alas her ranking wasn't even worth protecting. So....

Based off that juicy SI photo posted above, the choice would seem to be fairly clear imho.

Wow, did you ever goof with that!
It certainly wasn't a stretch to believe it at the time. She did end up reaching #5 in the rankings, but Raonic has been #3.
Don't think there was any reason to believe that her career would completely implode like it did, after the 2014 she had.
Just goes to show that there is never a sure thing in sports.

No I wouldn't characterize it that way at all.
Just poor judgment of potential.
Shades of Carling Bassett? (I thought she was much hotter) :)

“But she is playing one after, in Lausanne immediately following Wimbledon.

The 25-year-old reached the semifinals there a year ago, when it was held in Gstaad. And so, she has 110 ranking points to defend.

Bouchard hasn’t entered either of the two clay-court events the following week, in Palermo, Italy and Jurmala, Latvia.

So it’s a clay one-off, between Wimbledon and the hard-court tournaments in the U.S. and Canada leading up to the US Open.”

Bouchard is counting on repeating her performance again in Lausanne! Giving her 2019 performance to day, it may not happen. I think she should plays many tournaments as possible to get as many points as possible! Of course, if Bouchard can go deep into the draw of Wimbledon, she can skip all of these tournaments all together! I an talking quarters or into the second week of Wimbledon!

Just saw a TV ad for the Toronto Rogers Cup the first week in August and the whole clip was Bouchard.....no mention of Andreescu! What's wrong with these people!
I stand corrected....just saw another brief 15 sec clip and this one was all Bianca, so maybe Rogers are running short ads featuring several Canadian women.
