Eugenie Bouchard assures fan of making a comeback to the WTA tour

Bouchard is an active member on social media and provides constant updates to her fans regarding all things tennis. A fan recently shared a post on how tennis was boring without Eugenie Bouchard.

Responding to the tweet, the Canadian wrote, “be back soon!”. 

A former runner-up at Wimbledon Championships, the Canadian’s career has been a roller-coaster ride with a series of injuries affecting her game more often than not.

Bouchard admitted that she has been dealing with pain in her right-shoulder since 2020, and the injury she suffered at WTA Monterrey earlier this year deteriorated the situation further.

The Canadian’s rise to stardom began when she reached the semi-finals of the 2014 Australian Open , after defeating Ana Ivanovic in the quarters. She lost to Li Na in the semi-finals.

A few months later, at the French Open, Bouchard defeated Angelique Kerber and Carla Suarez Navarro. Her incredible run to the semis was stopped by the eventual champion, Maria Sharapova.

Eugenie Bouchard had a memorable Wimbledon run the same year but lost to Petra Kvitova in the finals. Her last title came at the WTA Auckland Open in 2019, where she partnered with the rising American tennis star, Sofia Kenin.

Having started her career with a bang, Bouchard consistently struggled to find top gear over the past few years as injuries only added fuel to the fire. An aggressive baseliner, the Canadian sure has the potential to defeat top-tier players.
