Re: Eugenie "Genie" Bouchard

Genie should be working harder. There's no excuse not to play as well as she did in Montreal. Tennis Canada is paying this trip in Asia. When she pays with her own money she'll have to play with despiration to earn a win. Tennis Canada will not support her financially for long if she keeps playing at this poor level she's been playing in Asia.

Re: Eugenie "Genie" Bouchard

poor level? She gave a good match to Vesnina who has done a great job the rest of the tournament. Yes she'S been disapointing in Osaka but she still managed to win 2 matches and lost to a player who's in decent form lately....yes she might have had a bad match but it is the end of a long trip to Asia for her, i doubt it was all that easy even tho she didn't play many matches.Nothing dramatic happened, she's still in her transition from junior to Pro and she hardly embarassed herself lol. Chill out

Re: Eugenie "Genie" Bouchard

I thought it was a cool bit of harmelss fun. It's not like she can train all the time, and just because she had a little fun with a video doesn't mean that she wasn't trying her best on the court. She's not a robot. If she wasn't making a video she probably would've been shopping or watching tv, which wouldn't generate all this backlash. It's nice to see tennis players doing something unique, and you have to remember she's still learning to play at the wta level. No one can win everything.

Re: Eugenie "Genie" Bouchard

It's obviously not about wasting time, because she has the right and the free time to have fun, but when you start a 'project' like this you keep focusing on it and thinking about new ideas, etc. I was grumpy when I wrote the other comment, but I was just concerning about Genie and I find it quite funny that I've received bed reps for it

Gotta love bad reps. Well, it could have affected her performance, but it doesn't matter now. What's important is that two young girl managed to get some WTA and ATP players to do silly stuff for them. They're gonna rule the tennis world soon

What really sucks is that Genie got only about 200 new followers on Twitter and Laura about 2000 Not to mention Laura already had a ridiculous number of followers.

Re: Eugenie "Genie" Bouchard

Sammy made that movie. I mean, I didn't find the silly stuff from Laura and Genie that amusing, but Sammy is brilliant
By the way, anyone know how did Genie and Laura become friends in the first place? They seem to be very familiar to each other.

THey played and won together in double when they were 13years old at the Prince Cup G4 in 2007. I'm GUESSING it's when they became friends.

You're really looking for bad rep Well, it's a sort of a meme, a lot of people do that kind of silly thing. Here's one for Skyrim fans, for instance. So it doesn't need to be really funny, it's something like, let's say, contextual fun. Feel me?

Re: Eugenie "Genie" Bouchard



Canadian rising star Eugenie Bouchard was named best
dressed player at the party and received a necklace.


They actually didn't have a contest, but just saying all eyes were on her was considered unfair
