Even on the story, Bouchard updated that it was her last practice session of 2020. She looked intense and was really looking good, as if she was sending a warning to her opponents.

“Last practice of 2020,” wrote Bouchard in the caption.

Bouchard clearly looked in form and seemed quite hungry. She will definitely like to improve and make 2021 a better season for her.

Eugenie Bouchard in the 2020 season

The 26-year-old had quite a disappointing season. To begin with, she didn’t even qualify for the main round of the Australian Open 2020. The Istanbul Open 2020 was the only tournament where the Canadian played well and managed to reach the finals. However, Patricia Maria Tig emerged as the winner of the tournament, defeating Bouchard in the finals.

Bouchard didn’t play the US Open 2020. She fared decently at the French Open 2020 but lost to Iga Swiatek in the third round who went on to win the title.

Later, she injured herself while playing the qualifiers at an ITF event in the United States. The injury ended her 2020 season. However, she returned to the court soon and started practicing again.

There is no doubt that Bouchard can make a convincing comeback. Fans still have a lot of expectations from her. However, she hasn’t looked in a great touch for the last 2-3 years. She is at the 141st spot in the WTA rankings, which makes the things even worse. Will Bouchard be able to bounce back in 2021 and prove her critics wrong?
