In response to this question, Genie said,

“Obviously, Superbowl Twitter date comes to mind but another one actually just came to my mind. I met this fan when I was in Istanbul in Turkey for the tournament…she asked me for a picture and I saw her phone case and her phone case was a bunch of pictures of me.

“I just thought it was so cute and she started crying when I started talking to her cause she was so excited. We ended up taking a bunch of pictures together and I just thought it was such a sweet moment.”

Bouchard probably has a lot more fans like the one she met in Istanbul, and they all are eager to see her play again. The Canadian had a great 2020 which saw her play some amazing tennis. For the first time in a long time, she made it to the third round of the French Open and she also improved her ranking from 262 to 140.

While this is certainly incredible, it is far from where Bouchard wants to be. At her best, she was ranked as the World No. 5 and she definitely wants to get back there. Her best opportunity to do so will be at the 2021 Australian Open.

There, the Canadian star can earn a whopping 2000 points which would significantly improve her ranking. This will surely be tough as she has never won a Grand Slam, but hopefully, that will change next year.
