Need about another month or so: Eugenie Bouchard on her recovery

In July, Bouchard injured her right shoulder blade and pulled out of the remaining tournaments. Her recovery process was on, however she became a guest on the Tennis Channel show. She has now given a positive update on her injury and the time she will take for a comeback.

Yes thank you for asking, it’s going well. So its been two and a half months now since I had the surgery and so I am still in the process of doing rehab every single day. I have to get my shoulder worked on, I have to do exercises with bands, exercises that are kind of like range of motion type. So I am not on the court yet, I think I need about another month or so before I can get on the court and start that progression of training,” said Bouchard when asked about her recovery process.
