Genie Bouchard = Kournikova 2.0?

What do you think?

Genie's life has changed pretty dramatically this season:

1. highly publicized semi run at AO

2. tweeted by her idol, Justin Bieber

3. showered with affection by fans (genie's army and stuffed animals everywhere she goes)

4. alienating her former BFF

5. living life independently without a chaperon


It seems as if genie is on a partying rampage, getting wet with tomic and verdasco and sharapova's boyfriend.

I think she is on the verge of becoming another anna kournikova: a once promising player whose ego is spiraling out of control because of the attention she's receiving due to her looks.

I see her as a perennial top 15-ish caliber player and grinder, with resultimilar to say, Cibulkova: a threat to get to the semi's in majors, but not to win at all.

Welcome to Kournikova 2.0!

Re: Genie Bouchard = Kournikova 2.0?

Oh man, another troll thread. Somebody please close this thread. How about we, uh, you know, wait a few years to see what becomes of Genie before throwing out the Kournikova comparisons? Right now, the comparisons are pointless.

Re: Genie Bouchard = Kournikova 2.0?

Wouldn't people want? I think that, she has higher chances to win more titles in her carrer than Kournikova.

Re: Genie Bouchard = Kournikova 2.0?

There does seem to be an awful lot of Bouchard bashing going on right now on here. I can't help thinking the WTA is partly to blame however. Once again her picture is blazoned across their homepage, this time under the heading "Rome Gallery: Fifteen Great Action Shots." Trying to make her the new WTA poster girl after a GS semi-final was one thing but continuing it for a tournament in which she was thrashed in the first round is a bit much.

Re: Genie Bouchard = Kournikova 2.0?

Im not a fan of Bouchard, but it would take something extraordinary for Genie not to achieve more in tennis what the russian did. Alot of people think she comes across like a bitch, but just watching her you can see how competitive she is and how much she actually want this

And much better. I don't think Bouchard will ever make it to the YEC, let alone to the semifinals.

Re: Genie Bouchard = Kournikova 2.0?

The biggest difference is that Kournikova's looks overshadowed the fact that she was in fact a great tennis player. In Genie's case the WTA is trying to capitalize on her looks to make her seem like a better/higher-ranked player than she actually is. Two different things happening.
