The Canadian tennis player Eugenie Bouchard made a convincing start of the season by reaching the quarters at ASB Classic and defeated Kirsten Flipkens and eighth seed Caroline Garcia en route to last-eight round. But a few days later, she failed to qualify for Australian Open 2020 as she fell to World Number 153 Martina Trevisan in the third qualifying round.
Recently, World Number 332 Bouchard revealed the worst date she’s ever been on. It turned out to be an unpleasant experience in her life. During a virtual session with Bob Menery, she was questioned regarding her love life. And later he happened to ask her on her irksome date ever.
Eugenie Bouchard on her awful experience
“I went on a date with a guy once, we went to the beach. He had food poisoning and he ran to the bathroom to throw up every 20 minutes,” Bouchard said.
“It was just a disaster, it was so bad. We tried to chill out on the beach and have fun but he would keep disappearing, behind bushes, to the bathroom in the clubhouse. It was bad.”
“We were supposed to go to dinner after but I was hoping, I was like, ‘I really don’t want to go to dinner anymore because this is awful’ and he was like, ‘Yeah, what if we skip dinner?’ I was like, ‘That’s great, can you just drop me off at home, goodbye’,” she added.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Bouchard raised funds for the ones who are in need. She offered a ‘fun tennis experience’ with her to the highest bidder and by doing so she managed to raise US $85,000.
Montreal-born Genie Bouchard was the first Canadian tennis player to reach the finals at Wimbledon. Also, Bouchard was the first Canadian to be ranked inside WTA’s top-five rankings. And in the year 2019, her compatriot Bianca Andreescu became the first Canadian tennis player to win a Grand Slam singles title, which came at US Open after beating Serena Williams in the finals.
Bouchard will be next playing an exhibition event in Charleston, USA along with several other WTA women.
