Injury has forced Eugenie Bouchard off

The Canadian star injured her right shoulder in March and has been on the sidelines ever since. However, she has taken up different roles in the meantime, such as being an analyst on Tennis Channel. Speaking about the World TeamTennis, besides Eugenie, even Canadian teenager Leylah Fernandez has decided to skip this year’s event.

Even the Bryan brothers, Reilly Opelka, and Sam Querrey have pulled out of this year’s competition. The event is scheduled to begin on the 13th of November and will end on the 28th of November.

On the business end of things, Bouchard began competing in the qualifiers of the Australian Open but failed to make it into the main draw. Notably, she even played a couple of events in Mexico. In Guadalajara, she came to the final before losing to Sara Sorribes Tormo in straight sets. 

After that, she competed in the Monterrey Open and bowed out of the tournament, losing in the opening round. She then got injured and has been out of action since. We hope to see her fit again and compete at the highest level, returning to her winning ways.
