Eugenie Bouchard partnered with coach Jorge Todero in July 2019 after parting her ways with Michael Joyce in April. The Canadian star is certainly having a substandard season as she dropped to the 112th position in the WTA rankings after struggling through injuries and changing coaches.
However, Bouchard’s new coach, Todero is confident about her future as he saw her working hard. He said, “I met her two weeks ago. She worked very hard. I am very excited to help her.”
Jorge Todero further suggested that Eugenie Bouchard wants to be back at her highest level and she can do it if she continues working hard. “I asked her what her goal was. She said I want to be back at my level. She can do it. If she keeps working as she does, she can succeed”, said Todero.
Eugenie Bouchard achieved a career-high ranking of world No. 5 in 2014. However, the 25-year-old saw a drop in her rankings in the subsequent years. Nevertheless, Jorge Todero believes that Bouchard can make it to the top 5 in the WTA rankings but it will take time as they’ll have to work together gradually to reach the highest position.
Todero continued, “Now, yes. But we need time. We have to work step by step to make her passion be there again in matches. I am very pleased with her”
Earlier, Eugenie Bouchard revealed that she was happy to partner with her new coach, Jorge Todero and feels that they are proceeding to the right path. She said, “It’s going well. We’re trying to change a couple of things, so it’s definitely going to be a process but I think it’s the right process.”
The Canadian further added, “I don’t want to get into too many specifics about training. Just a couple of technical things on my shots. Also court positioning, really keeping in mind the essence of my game.”
