Can Eugenie Bouchard win a title in 2021?

Bouchard didn’t have an ideal start in the 2021 tennis season. She didn’t even make it into the main draw of the Australian Open 2021 due to her poor performance.

Bouchard is currently at the 141st position in the WTA rankings and will surely want to improve her record there. In the last season, too, she managed to play just a single final and failed to win any title.

Bouchard is not able to hit her backhand that effectively, and that has let her down over the last few years. She also hits the net too often and gives away easy points to her opponents. The Canadian will surely want to work on this and come back stronger in the next tournament.

Bouchard’s next tournament remains shrouded in mystery for the near future. Fans still have massive expectations from her and want her to deliver in the upcoming tournaments. They certainly hope that they’ll be able to see the vintage Bouchard once again by the end of the 2021 tennis season.
