I spoke to her. She is a giant ****.
I would think you be very comfy in this thread but apparently you do not like Bouchard after meeting her and this is not a GOAT thread! Just saying! Nothing personal, just say your motto and had to comment!:) Maybe she was having a bad day the day you met her?! After all, she has been on the loosing end since 2016?

I guess she is only nice to the people she wants to be nice to now! An average normal young lady’s personal style. Many young ladies in general are not openly friendly to strangers either! So she just acting like all the rest of the ladies, sort of stuck up and not welcoming!

@Harry_Wild: Not that her tennis career really matters at all, but did you know your girl is trying to play a tennis match in Lausanne next week?

She plays a girl named Tamara Korpatsch from Germany tomorrow in the first round.

I miss your fictional WHAT IF scenarios with points, rankings and stuff...

Not surprising to hear she's as much of a **** in real life as she seems on TV. This is the same girl who refused to shake her opponent's hand before a Fed Cup match or something? Yeah, real class act.

I will say that it was fun to watch her beat Sharapova when she was fresh back on the tour after her drug ban. That was probably the one time she was able to back up her big mouth.

She’s had ridiculously easy draws for months, only one top 50 player (Tsurenko), and still running up a losing streak that puts her outside the top 100

Just imagine if she were having to play elite competition in any of these tournaments

Her best bet at this point is cracking her head on a locker room floor again

Wow, sorry she was so mean to you. :( She definitely sounds as bad in person as she comes across in the media.
I'm not surprised.

When I went to see her last year at Montreal's Rogers Cup teaming up with Sloane Stevens for Doubles Main Event, as I said Hi to Bouchard, she kept walking and not acknowledging me while Stephens came by to apologize to me for Bouchard's behavior.

If you are a Peasant to her eyes, she will treat you like cr@p. Simple as that.

Meanwhile, the lengthiest thread dedicated to Sloane Stephens, real slam winner and real class act, cognizant of the fact that she wouldn't amount to all that much without the p̶e̶a̶s̶a̶n̶t̶s̶, sorry, the fans, is like four pages long.

Bouchard’s 2019 first half of the year been a total dud! Bouchard needs to do well in the second or she will be easily back in the 190-240 rankings at the end of the year! Bouchard is currently at 95!

I wonder if Tennis Canada will waste (once again) a wild card for the main draw on Bouchard for Rogers Cup. The qualification entry list features pretty decent players so I don't see her making it into the main draw if she needs to play for it.

Bouchard should get a WC into the 2019 Roger Cup! She is a Canadian and has play Fed Cup previously too!

Based on your knowledge, when is the last time when she played FedCup for Canada and when is the last time she won a match for Canada? I'll save you the trouble .... She hasn't played FedCup since 2015 !!!! Remember that embarrassing (mostly for the country) episode with the handshake followed by losing both her ties?

There are young Canadian players out there, determined to play their hearts out on a big scene that would much rather deserve that chance instead of Bouchard which will most likely lose the first match and waste a wild card (just like in the past 2 editions).

2016 in U.S. Open she got hurt with a head injury from a slip on the locker room floor that was wet. Mid 2017 I think she began playing on the Tour again.

Fact check: the incident you mentioned took place at 2015 USO.

Regardless, the incident you referenced has absolutely nothing to do with the state Bouchard's tennis career is in and has been after a relatively successful 2014. That incident has nothing to do with Bouchard not playing FedCup since 2015 nor with her getting/not getting a MD WC at 2019 RogersCup.

My original comment was strictly my opinion that Tennis Canada should stop wasting once again a main draw WC on Bouchard and rather give it to a young, up and coming Canadian player. At the most, they could give her a WC for the qualifications and let her work her way up to the main draw if she can.

Agree, at this point, we're all sick of her.

She will always have 2014 (semis at all 4 Slams including the final of Wimbledon) which is a lot more than many players have achieved. Post 2014 it's just been a steady and accelerating decline all the way. I wonder why she still goes through the motions and doesn't just settle on her modelling career once and for all?

Played WTT last night...

Genie Bouchard is the former world No. 5 women’s tennis player and a 2014 Wimbledon singles finalist.

She is also known for going on a date with a stranger after losing a Twitter bet on Super Bowl LII, when the New England Patriots rallied to beat the Atlanta Falcons.

Bouchard’s only World Team Tennis date of the season playing with the Orange County Breakers came Tuesday night. The Breakers had a showdown with the first-place Philadelphia Freedoms at Palisades Tennis Club in Newport Beach.

The franchise player Bouchard did her part, helping the Breakers withstand a late rally and earn a 20-19 victory to even their season record at 3-3.

The Breakers led throughout before Philadelphia’s Fabrice Martin and Adrian Mannarino blanked Orange County 5-0 in the final set of men’s doubles, against Steve Johnson and James Ward. The Freedoms suddenly had tied the match at 19-19, and a set tiebreaker would decide the match.

Johnson and Ward saved a match point to get the tiebreaker to 6-6, meaning the next point would decide the entire match. Johnson launched a service winner that Mannarino was unable to return.

“Basically one point decided the whole match tonight,” said Bouchard, adding that adrenaline was still racing through her body after the final point. “It can’t get more stressful than that. It’s interesting, because in normal tournaments you don’t play with this sudden-death [point]. It’s cool to put yourself out there like that. I had sudden-death in my singles [set] and I failed miserably — I double-faulted — but I still think I played well in moments. It was really good to get some match play.”

Orange County withstood a late rally and snapped Philadelphia’s seven-match winning streak, handing the Freedoms (7-2) just their second loss of the season and moving into a three-way tie for third place in the league with rival San Diego and New York, who both are 4-4. The top four teams in the eight-team league advance to the playoffs.

Bouchard played twice Tuesday, splitting the sets. She and Andreja Klepac beat Philadelphia’s Taylor Townsend and Raquel Atawo 5-2 in women’s doubles, handing the league-leading Freedoms duo its first loss of the season.

The set got off to an inauspicious start for Bouchard, who was aced as Townsend’s first left-handed serve twisted away from her. She smiled and kept playing. Bouchard later played Townsend in singles, and she was edged 5-4 (5-4 in the tiebreaker). But it was an impressive night for the Breakers, who couldn’t hold a late lead in Monday’s 19-18 home loss to visiting Springfield.

“You know, we had to play the top two teams in the league back-to-back,” Breakers coach Rick Leach said. “Tonight was a huge win for us. A total team effort … Genie fit in great. The four games she got against Taylor were huge, because Taylor is No. 1 in the league.”

The match started off with mixed doubles, where Orange County’s Luke Bambridge and Klepac earned a 5-4 (5-4 in the tiebreaker) victory over Atawo and Martin. The women’s doubles win by Bouchard and Klepac gave Orange County a 10-6 advantage.

The Breakers kept it going in men’s singles. Johnson, a former Orange High and USC star playing in the second of his three consecutive home matches for the Breakers, had his serve broken at love in the first game of the set. But he came back for a 5-3 victory over Mannarino, and Orange County had a 15-9 halftime advantage.

Bouchard broke Townsend’s serve in the fifth game of women’s singles for a 3-2 edge, but she was immediately broken back. She fought back from a 4-1 deficit in the tiebreaker, winning three straight points. On the 4-4 set point, it ended it a bit anticlimactically as Bouchard did double-fault. She squealed before spinning around in a circle.

2014 Wimbledon finalist Genie Bouchard made her Breakers debut with a bang, teaming up with Klepac to win both of the key deciding points on Atawo and Taylor Townsend’s serves to get the 5-2 victory.

“The atmosphere was awesome. For the last two matches to go down to a deciding point just shows how cool World TeamTennis is, and how different it is from normal tournaments. That’s why I keep coming back, it’s my fourth year.”

Leach strayed from his usual order of play, moving men’s singles from its usual spot as the fifth set of the match, up a couple sets to being the third set. The move paid off for fellow USC alum Johnson, with the two-time NCAA singles champion digging out of a 0-2 hole and snapping a four-game drought dating back to his match the previous night to earn a 5-3 win over Frenchman Adrian Mannarino.

Former world number five Bouchard helped maintain the lead for Orange County, putting four games on the board and just falling 5-4 in the tiebreak to 2018 WTT Female MVP Townsend.

With the Breakers having a 19-14 lead heading into men’s doubles, a set that does not typically feature many breaks of serve, it looked like the home team had built a large enough lead to earn the upset. But that is the beauty of the World TeamTennis format, momentum can easily change and leads can be erased in the blink of an eye.”

100% this. In fact, I think most people would be shocked if someone said, “I met her and she’s so humble and nice! We had a 5 minute conversation about XYZ. Just amazing! I’m a new fan who will be cheering her now!”

Bouchard is 25 year old. If she went to college and graduated with bachelor degree, she be 24-25 years of age since people now take 6 years to finish now a day. Plus Bouchard is a multi-millionaire, has lots of business connections and is famous worldwide, - the world is hers!
Brother, I really hope you’re related to her or something; otherwise, I can’t understand this type of fan hood for an awful player who clearly doesn’t care about the game who also seems like a stuck up brat.

man, haven't seen bouchard play for any extended period of time in a while - through 4 games vs lauren davis, she looks terrible (lost 18 of last 23 points to go down 0-4)

poor footwork, lots of out-of-position, wild, ill-advised cuts at the ball

this new coach won't be around for long, as this career continues to spiral

she kind of looks like kyrgios when he's trying to lose quickly

Stuck up Bouchard loses again
That what happen to a player that has no confidence in herself and plays recklessly, with over hitting her groundstrokes over the baseline in all most every three groundstroke rally. Not sure what to do to fix Bouchard game now! Plays now like a low level ranked aggressive NTRP 4.0 amateur player!

Maybe washed up?

I think Bouchard tends to overhit her groundstrokes because she knows she doesn't have the athletic ability to stay long in the point. She seems slow on her legs and there is no "explosion" in her movement. She could overcome those shortcomings by either

a) have a better sense of anticipation of what her opponent is going to do with the ball, à la Chris Evert or Martina Hingis, to make up for being half a step late, or

b) hitting even harder but with more spin for regularity, à la Lindsay Davenport or Serena Williams.

Tactic a) requires a lot of confidence, which she had back in 2014 but has been missing sorely the last five years and I don't really see her recover after that many years of being in a slump.

Tactic b) would require

1) technical proficiency and she would need to retool/re-engineer all her groundstrokes, which, right now, are all too tight and cramped with an extremely short preparation and very little follow through and
2) athletic abilities of their own, which she lacks as she's not a big girl like Lindsey, Serena or even Osaka

The TL;DR is, IMHO, if she doesn't magically regain the confidence she had back in 2014, she's destined to be a good ITF level player.

But with her big ego, and the wild card offers eventually drying up and going to younger, more promising girls, I don't see her lasting much more beyond 2020 on the tour if something doesn't finally click really soon.

Bouchard should watch matches of her contemporaries and see how to play a match. How they setup points and do rallies! Like Cori Gauff does!

Yea but she never made 4 slam semis and a slam final
It looks like 2 slam SF, and 1 Final. The winner (drum roll) is probably Bouchard. I tried to be nice in Bouchard fan thread in showing that her fast decline as non-unique. :p

Edit: Despite her performance (or lack thereof), she has made $258,736 YTD. Not too shabby.

A lot of that goes to her entourage: coaching staff, PT, travel, taxes, etc... I think Bouchard is looking like a Melanie Oudin. She did win a GS title with Jack Sock. Bouchard has not won anything yet like a Premier, International or GS title.
