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

I thought she was a billionaire? Could've sworn I read somewhere that she inherited a **** ton of money.... maybe i'm imagining it
LOL ... you may have read it somewhere (I did too) but it's just a load of crap posted on the Internet which ignorant people take to the face value as true info without using their own brain.

Her family, while apparently well off, is nowhere as rich as some think it is. Last year her dad had to sell the family home (the house Bouchard grew in) to pay $850K CAD to the Government in back taxes which makes you wonder why would someone truly rich would have to resort to such an extreme measure, even if it's not the only property owned, to pay such an amount. They would simply write a cheque for the amount owned or would not try to skim the Gov on taxes in the first place.
Also, you wonder why his supposedly rich daughter did not spare the change to save him the trouble and simply write him a cheque to pay his debt; $850K is no big deal if someone's net worth is in multi-millions as believed.

Here it is an article on the matter from a local news paper (in French): https://www.journaldequebec.com/2018/05/05/le-fisc-est-aux-trousses-du-pere-deugenie-bouchard

This is in addition to another failed tax avoidance scheme he pulled off to finance his daughter's tennis career (why do that for $80K if you are really rich?) on which CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) called him off few years ago. He lost the case in the Tax Court as well (see article below for some details).

There is however an wealthy individual in Quebec, which is one the Canadian billionaires, named Alain Bouchard (worth about 3.9 Billion USD according to Forbes 2019) which was probably used as a hook for the fake news. However he is not related to Bouchard and he has 4 children on his own but none of them named Eugenie ;).

While Bouchard is certainly not poor (multi millionaire for sure) she is nowhere as rich as some people here think she is.

At a young age in her mid twenties, Bouchard is already a multi-millionaire! I say she doing pretty well in the game of life!

Some amusing comparisons

Bouchard: career high #5, now 151
Andreescu: started year 152, now #5

Bouchard: 1 career WTA singles title at the world famous Nurnburger
Andreescu: 4 WTA singles titles in her last 7 tournaments (Newport Beach, Indian Wells, Toronto, USOpen)

Bouchard career prize money on tour (448 matches): 6.36 million dollars
Andreescu prize money this year (missed good chunk of season, 49 matches): 6.05 million dollars

Bouchard’s opponents of any ranking: undefeated against her since February
Andreescu’s top-10 ranked opponents: 0-8 against her

Looks like Bouchard can't even get past 1R in smallest of the smallest ITF tournaments. She just lost in 3 sets to a player no one probably heard of, ranked #272.

Don’t think it would be unreasonable for her to self-rate as a 4.5 at this point

“Dear USTA,
I have not won a match since February. I rarely keep three balls in a row in the court, have little to no footwork, and have no plan B if smacking one flat backhand down the line doesn’t automatically win me the point. Also, like most USTA women, I care more about fashion / matching outfits than the quality of my tennis. 4.5 please? Love, Genie”

To be fair, Bouchard had a concussion at the 2016 U.S. Open, if she wrote a letter like this, U.S. Open management would be in a panic mode, thinking she now lost her mind too! LOL! Kind of like an extreme football head injury and motorcycle injury without helmet can cause.

Most of her set were close and some matches went 3 sets too. It just she try to hard at critical times in the set like at 4-4 and try to over power the opponent to win the critical game and gets messed up or if she is serving, does abdouble fault at 30-40; things like that.

A bunch more points just came off the board, live ranking #220

130 points to defend by Aussie Open, if she fails to defend those she’ll be lower than #350

This is spiraling

If forgot to mention that her home in the Bahamas maybe damaged or destroyed! Bouchard moved out of her Miami location to the Bahamas just this year too.

Well, the season’s over. She could play in the Houston 125K in a couple weeks, but she won’t.
Bouchard ranking is at an all time low of 220! This means only ITF tournaments and WTA qualifying rounds for 125K to 250K. No WTA International or Premier level tournaments. No GS qualifying either! Hopefully, Bouchard get some WC entries for beginning of 2020 to get her back not the 180s so she can doing WTA high level tournaments again.

I'd like to summon the poster who some time ago said she was already bigger than Steffi Graf: he must be a total hoot at his tennis club parties and I want to be entertained.

Interesting Singles draw sheet. There are 9 spots open. Only 8 spots are reserved for Qualifiers. Almost looks like as if she withdrew from Singles, but she's not in the withdrawal list.

She is listed as seeded #2 in doubles with Stollar, though.

Looks like she's really out from the Singles draw. All lines in the singles draw has now been filled and there's a new "LL" (Lucky Loser) entry there. She's still listed in the doubles draw, though.

Her ranking decline is far outstripping this thread.....how long will it take us to get this to over 200 pages?
