Bouchard laments the ugly side of beauty

Sydney International: Eugenie Bouchard laments the ugly side of beauty

Quote:
"If you can have results like I have had – right now I'm not having results, but I have had results – what's wrong with it? To get results and be known outside of the tennis world doing different shoots, be in magazines, to me I'm taking advantage of all the opportunities I have because of all the hard work I put in.

"For sure, people are jealous, but you have to see that as a backhanded compliment. Having all the haters, it means you've actually achieved something in life. As for the players on tour, I try to stay in my bubble and do my own thing. But I'm not going to let other people's thoughts or judgments put limitations on me.

"For me, tennis is my No.1 priority. People say, 'you do more photo shoots than practise'. I probably do less photo shoots than other players on tour. I just get the hate for it, I get the press for it. People are going to hate no matter what. I'm going to do me, do my life and that's it."
Quote:
"I'm not here to socialise [with players]," Bouchard says.

"I'm friendly with my co-workers on tour, but I don't really consider anyone a true real friend. I'd rather focus on my work when I'm on tour. It's a tough sacrifice, but the benefits are so great as well. No 22-year-old I know has the capabilities I have, has achieved as much as I have. With great sacrifice comes great benefit. It's completely worth it.

"If my career were to end tomorrow it would have all been worth it. Obviously I want my career to go another 10 years and I want to achieve my ultimate dreams and goals, but my life is so unique compared to any other normal kid my age. Even if I never win another match on tour it's still worth it because it's an unbelievable experience."
Quote:
"I've received death threats and things like that and have had some aggressive fans as well," she says.

"Unfortunately, that's part of it, but most of them are really nice and support me no matter what. Some cross the line a little bit, but I have people around me to look out for me. Unjustified hate and unintelligent hate, that disappoints me. For example, I'll practise six hours in a day and then go to the movies at night. What do I post on social media? I'll post about the movies because to me that's the cool part of my day.

"I practise every single day and that's my job. Eighty per cent of my day is about tennis, but I post about the 20 per cent I do something different and it's like 'why aren't you practicing?' I spent six hours on a tennis court today, but I didn't show any of you that. That unintelligent hate, that I just find disappointing."
Quote:
"It wasn't the distractions that got to me," she says.

"It was the pressure and the expectations. The sudden fact that if I win it's normal, and if I lose it's a disaster. I try not to read about myself and I don't, but sometimes I'm forced to come face-to-face with when I talk to reporters and do press conferences because they ask 'do you think you're too focused on doing photo shoots' or 'oh, you've lost four games in a row, how do you feel about that?'

"That in a way made me realise what people were saying and I felt that put too much expectation on me. For me having that sudden target on my back that made my 2015 year really tough."

Re: Bouchard laments the ugly side of beauty

I always laugh when people say I am not bothered about something and then go on a rant about that thing. She is bothered about it and it bothers her so many people think she is not taking tennis serious.

I have no words for her. Speechless about that arrogance.

Re: Bouchard laments the ugly side of beauty

I thought all those losses would be humbling for her, and I was even starting to feel sorry but not after this mess

Bouchard laments the ugly side of beauty straight white males finding her attractive.
Somebody so basic-looking can't be beautiful in my book.

Now that PopCon is over I can be my occasional asshole self again.


The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Bouchard laments the ugly side of beauty

I read the whole article. You could swap out Bouchard's name and substitute in a currently banned players name and not miss a beat. It's the kind of thing they used to write about her. I know Bouchard isn't with IMG anymore so who is repping her? I doubt Eisenbud has time to manage her even if this reads like something he'd give to a reporter to put his or her byline on.

"No 22-year-old I know has the capabilities I have, has achieved as much as I have."

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

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

Absolutely untrue, and even if Maria did come across as arrogant at times, at least she was doing so as a consistent top 5 player, with a tonne of media attention. Bouchard is a nobody both inside and outside of tennis, yet still has ridiculous delusions of grandeur.
