Lost of people are outraged about Muguruza and Sharapova's stances. I recall a long shit thread against Muguruza saying so, and I beleive she was only joking and that was overblown. Afterall we do know she does have friends on tour. Sharapova gets more shit than almost anybody on this board and always has done and her reputation dropped dramatically last year in case you didn't notice.

Of course a big difference is, neither of them have acted so publically disrespectful to other players on tour. Play down the handshake issue all you want but Muguruza and Sharapova have at least acted in the vien of sportsmanship.

I also don't recall Maria or Garbine ever complaiming people were jealous of them either.

The thing is, Genie does still have time on her side and some natural talent so she could actually improve and get back into the top 20, but with this level of delusion, one has to wonder if she will just continue to stagnate and retire within the next few seasons. I don't see her ever reaching a slam final again but she could still be good.

Re: Bouchard laments the ugly side of beauty

Eugenie Bouchard is like one of those College sorority girls that are clinging onto their High School glory days/popularity, thinking it somehow still makes them relevant and entitled.


One Wimbledon final can only keep you relevant for so long, honey. Lisicki and Zvonareva can tell you all about that. If you're gonna be arrogant, make sure your results are backing you up.

No one cares about her anymore, and yes, she's not even that beautiful.
And yet here you are, posting a paragraph on Genie? And so is everyone else in this thread.
Genie is still a drawcard for tournaments, granted results haven't been justifying that sort of attention. Despite so, tournaments line up to show her off and promote her presence at tournaments when she's ranked low 40s. Brisbane did a whole NYE segment on Genie. Why else would they do it if not for marketing reasons?

I see no lies here, maybe slight exaggeration with "sporting superstar", that is all

Tournament directors love to get players who can "make fans flock"! They do this:
People dont like arrogant people and celebrate when they fail. Look at Ronda.......Genie is not special. If she had anything about her, she would ask herself why so many people dislike her.

Well speaking as a dull heterosexual white male I don't find her remotely attractive.

And that's before you take her "personality" into account.

Still as another poster said I always find the 2014 Wimbledon Final is excellent for reducing my blood pressure in these situations. And the great thing is it only takes 55 minutes.

Genie certainly isn't the brightest WTA star, but that "22" comment, I'm sure she's referring to her friends.

Well, that reduces your chances of being dull by approximately 95%

He probably read on google search or trip advisor that Istanbul is less expensive than Singapore.
Cool story bro.

Re: Bouchard laments the ugly side of beauty

She probably mean she has achieved the most out of group of friends from Montreal/Florida which is most likely true. Her sister ''studies" and goes clubbing every night.

The hate she gets in her home province is unbelievable.
Eugenie is either poorly handled by her agents or she doesn't listen as this article was a terrible idea.

She admits to be friendly but real, lifelong friendship is very rare on the tennis circuit and it's probably more honest to say you're friendly than selling yourself as being best friends with people that are most likely casual acquaintances, at best. It just looks horrible to ever say out loud "I ain't here to make friends".

Re: Bouchard laments the ugly side of beauty

She really must be living in some kind of altermative reality where she is number one with at least 5 slams, because besides her awkward losses and slip in the bathroom she hasn't done anything relevant since getting spanked from Petra in that 2014 Wimbledon final.
GURL BYE

Re: Bouchard laments the ugly side of beauty

I think she'll rebound. Her rise in 2014 was meteoric, and she's still only 22. This year will be important but if she's putting in the work like she says then the results will come. 2015 was terrible, though she did struggle with injuries... 2016 showed promise in places.

I like her "arrogant" persona. Much better than the false modesty other players exhibit. She is beautiful, making millions and living a fabulous life.

no .Kvitova is average .Genie, along with Sharapova and Ivanovic are really pretty at least in the context of WTA.so no surprise they are three players who get a lot of hate on here .Ivanovic could not be nicer or more innocent yet she still got SO much hate all because she was pretty .

She must LITERALLY live in a bubble then 1 MM and a couple of fluke GS runs between dozens of embarrassments at the hands of all kind of scrubs, and still talks about herself like she's Serena. Poor thing
This is the crux of it. I understand the whole clinging to you achievements when life is sucking but you really only do that in your bubble; you don't go around telling people "look, look, I'm still relevant! I still matter!" You only do that when you start to think the world is leaving your behind and desperately want to reaming in people's minds. The difference is she hasn't achieved anything since.

Comparing Eugenie to Sloane is interesting. They both have had similar career trajectories with the only difference being Sloane having a better resume. But they both have that aura of expecting to win, get endorsements, be the face of women's tennis. Of course it's exacerbated by the Canadian/American/English speaking media who are desperate to have someone waiting in the wings when the Williams sisters and Sharapova retire. But in a general sense, they don't seem to want to work for winning but just expect it happen.

This is actually a good analogy. Unless she has new achievements, she'll always cling to her past ones. Like getting a good score on the ACTs/SATs when you start doing poorly in college. The odd thing is, making a slam final and getting slaughtered isn't a fully achievement. Right now, she's an answer to a trivia question that in ten years only die hard tennis fans will be able to answer.

I do think this kind of attitude can hinder one's ability to achieve more. Probably every time she loses to someone she shouldn't, she tells herself "at least I have my Wimbledon runner up plate; they don't have that; they don't know how to do that." Which is the equivalent of me saying every time my adviser wants more corrections on my thesis "but I got into 6 graduate schools therefore I know better." No, I don't know better but it seems that unlike Eugenie, I'm willing to listen and learn no matter how much it erodes my ego and self-confidence in my skills. The more aware of your faults the more likely you'll be able to correct them or at least neutralize them.

Imagine having a friend this far up her own ass to be shading you like this. I'm surprised she even has friends
