Eugenie Bouchard reflects on her time away from tennis and reveals her plans for the future


Eugenie Bouchard said that being on television was a nice experience, but that she prefers to be on the pitch rather than in the booth. Bouchard, 28, played the last tournament of his 2021 season in mid-March, in Monterrey. After Monterrey, Bouchard underwent shoulder surgery, the surgery that sidelined her for the next 17 months.

While recovering, Bouchard worked as a tennis pundit for the Tennis Channel. This August, Bouchard made his long-awaited return to tennis. On Tuesday, Bouchard notched her first WTA 1000 victory since 2019. In the first round of Guadalajara, Bouchard defeated Kayla Day 7-5 6-3.

Bouchard: I still want to play tennis for a few years

«I much prefer playing tennis. It was great to do a few different off-court activities while I was away. Honestly, being on live TV helped me fill that need for adrenaline that was missing while I was playing tennis.»

He countered it a bit. He made me challenge myself and take me out of my comfort zone. I’d rather be sweating on the pitch. I can always do that later in life. I still want to play tennis for a few years,» Bouchard said, according to Sportskeeda.

In Mexico, Bouchard is practically a fan favorite. After beating Day in his first match in Guadalajara, Bouchard took a moment to express his gratitude to his Mexican fans. «Yeah, I mean, like I said on court, I really feel the special support.

They are really passionate about tennis. I think I can speak for all players when I say that we love playing in front of people who appreciate what we do. The fans here definitely do. They are tennis fans and it’s a lot of fun,» Bouchard said.

Bouchard and Day were playing against each other for the second time. In 2019, Bouchard defeated Day in Newport Beach. For Bouchard, winning a match at the WTA 1000 level was certainly important to her confidence levels.
