Former World No. 5 Eugenie Bouchard played amazingly well at the Guadalajara Open 2021. The Canadian star showed some great fighting spirit and ended as the runner-up of the tournament. Even though Bouchard lost the finals in straight sets against Sara Sorribes Tormo, she was able to prove that she still had a lot of tennis left in her.

In a recent interview, Eugenie Bouchard revealed her future goals and ambitions. She believes that she hasn’t played a lot of tennis last year and will certainly look forward to competing a lot more on tour this season. She also claimed that because she missed too many matches, she wasn’t able to get the desired results.

“It’s a long road,” began Bouchard. “I just want to keep trying to play a lot of matches. That’s what’s been lacking for me.”

The tennis star said that she wouldn’t want to miss any more matches this year. Although she feels that the coronavirus pandemic didn’t allow her to play a lot last year, she also admitted that she hasn’t stepped forward herself and played many matches in the last couple of years.

“Obviously last year with COVID, but even in the last couple of years, I wasn’t playing enough,” added the 2014 Wimbledon Championships runner-up.
