Eugenie Bouchard feels her quarantine posts were a hit

The Canadian beauty has always been a fan favorite. However, luck hasn’t favored her much recently. The former World No. 5 has spent most of her 2021 season in recovery, following her arm injury back in June. Regardless, she continues to stay positive and remains part of the action, even from the sidelines.

In a new video, the athlete answers a few trivia questions about herself and her sport. Although, in a question about her 2020 season, she finds out that she was the most tweeted female Canadian athlete that year. Ecstatic and shocked, she said, “What? 2020? What did I do that was interesting in 2020? I sat on my couch for three months straight. I guess my quarantine post were a hit.”

Still in recovery, Eugenie now spends her time as tennis guru cum commentator, covering some of the iconic battles at the National Bank Open. Notably, her recent comments over a few stars, their shenanigans, and their dramatic appearances on the court went viral. In particular, she came to the aid of the antic specialist, Nick Kyrgios, defending the ‘bad boy’ of tennis in yet another one of his dramatic outings.

Fan of the Australian

Nick’s charisma was on display in his first-round clash at the National Bank Open 2021. As he argued with the umpire over a disagreement on a point, fans couldn’t help but notice the repeated bad behavior. However, appearing in her journalist avatar, Eugenie was quick to defend her former doubles partner. Opening up on Nick’s arguments, she said, “But it’s still entertaining. I’m still a fan. I think tennis needs a bad guy like Nick.”

Eugenie’s positive attitude and charisma make her a delight to watch. However, fans would jump to a chance of seeing her drop the mic and pick up the racket instead. Although unlikely, they hope to see her in action soon. However, that soon will not be at the US Open 2021.
