Re: has andreescu surpassed bouchard at 18 years old??
Well by rank and slam performance genie had more Was she just 18 in 2014? I guess so .._) BUT
Bianca has a more important title, IW, and has beat more top players, and is obviously the more complete player in terms of her game
The Big question really is how Genie managed what she did that year.
I was a beleiver in 2014. And I heard Evert, Navratilova and Wade all say "here is a future champion, slam winner, etc.
So many were wrong.
There were tell tale signs: she only performed well at slams
her movement never looked right. I was willing to forget about because of the results.
Anyway, Bianca is the real deal.
Genie was just the sex appeal and the looks and marketability and the ocassional streak of aggressive brilliance.
I think the most one can hope for with genie is top 40 ish.
But what a serving of humble pie she has had to eat.
I remember in 2014 Genie, in interviews, saying she was pissed she lost even a couple of matches a year.
Now, she is grateful to get past 1rst round. almost never does.
What a story.
