Bouchard withdraws from Wuhan

According to Stephanie Myles she has split with Högsted again.

Coachless, Genie Bouchard skips Wuhan

She also skipped Wuhan and Beijing last year.

Re: Bouchard withdraws from Wuhan

I wondered when Hogstedt would jump ship.

No brainer really, as Genie is going nowhere fast.

I gather she will abandon the rest of the stops on what once was an ambitious Asian tournament schedule.

Eugenia "I Can't Do Tennis Anymore" Bouchard

Re: Bouchard withdraws from Wuhan

travelling all the way there to play one match in each competition is waste of time.

Quote:
Tennis.Life has learned that Thomas Högstedt has abandoned ship and already has signed on to work with another player. The Swede worked with Bouchard for the first three months of 2016 and then returned for 2017.

That player is believed to be Russia’s Ekaterina Makarova.
Ouch...

I can't wait to hear the BlueTrees excuse for this though..

"She's just too damn hot to play Wuhan"
even though after the Wimbledon final, Wuhan is one of the best results in her career...

Högstedt with Makarova would be really nice I think. Better for both.

Defeat doesn't finish a man, quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits.

Re: Bouchard withdraws from Wuhan

Didn't Makarova get Sears as coach? Another change.

I do feel sorry for Bouchard now, been such a long slump.

Re: Bouchard withdraws from Wuhan

no offense to makarova, but when a top coach dumps bouchard for her with all the sponsorship that comes with it...you know the end is near. I honestly dont see her playing tennis in 2 years time

Re: Bouchard withdraws from Wuhan

I think Maria said it her book that Hogs was extremely hard to work with, and this is coming from someone with a work ethic from Maria, so I can only imagine it's practically impossible for Jenny to follow the Swede's training approach

Hogstedt was great with Li and Pova. Curious to see how it turns out for Ekat.

She won't be missed there, like last year. Literally nobody after Wimbledon 2014.

Re: Bouchard withdraws from Wuhan

Pliskova and Hogstedt? That could be a deadly combination.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
Please note this is a signature about Tatjana Maria
