Why is Bouchard so hated?

No bash thread.

I mean, what has she done? Just for that Fed Cup accident with Kucova?

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

She is pretty full of herself and a bit overconfident. Just have a look at her twitter account.

Modesty is apparently appreciated here.

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

Wat are you talking about?

Most players at the top have leagues of fans and as many haters, with some having even more haters than fans on this board. I don't think Eugenie is part of the latter category.

Venus Serena JJ Bethanie Vania Naomi
Petra S. Peng S. Zhang Su-Wei Vera Cici
Vesnina Sveta McHale Zarina Qiang Lizette Danielle Dayana Amanda
Elina Min Garbiρe Sachia Luksika Yafan Niculescu Sofia Sloane Franny Crawford Patty Shelby
Kokkinakis Pospisil Coric Nishikori Berdych Huey Shapovalov Sock F.Lopez Murray Tiafoe Dmitrov Monfils Thiem Roanic Tsonga Khachanov Sugita Chung

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

I think it's about her personality. She seems to be too self-confident and a little bit arrogant. Little more modesty would work fine to her.

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

It's odd actually, I think it's because she started beating so many top players. In 2012&2013 she was probably one of the most loved players on this board.

Petra Kvitova.

Many Top players are more self-confident and arrogant, and yet they aren't hated this way.

Overrated players do generate a lot of hate. It really only makes sense though.

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

She doesn't even try to be liked. You can get the Hingis vibe all around her. The thing is she isn't as great as Hingis yet.

0 for 3 and incorrect English too. Kudos!

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

First of all, I don't hate her. I felt that Kucova incident was stupid and unnecessary, but at the time I thought that she is just young and needs to mature. Maybe she just is like that, dunno.

On a more general note... I just can't identify with Bouchard. She has a very nice game, but emotionally, I can't connect with her. She reminds me of a robot, no emotions at all. With Sharapova, I feel she's still a human being, but Genie? Don't know about her, she just seems way too mature in a way. I know it's good for her results, but still...
For other players, I can still see the FUN that they have competing. As for Bouchard, it sometimes seems like she is not even playing for herself, but for someone else. It's strange to explain, but that's what I feel when watching her.

Over-confident might also be a good word to describe why she is not particulary liked on here. It's good for her confidence on the court that she believes in herself, but her press conferences sometimes sound like she is not a single bit surprised about her results this year. That's quite hard to believe. Simona, in opposition, is way more down-to-earth. She said she believed she can be at the top, but never expected to have a stunning year like she had. I just think that's a better way to communicate.

Also, I don't like her voice. But that's not her fault at all.

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

For me: her attitude just grates, excessive hype (thanks to a certain Canadian at the WTA) before she accomplished anything significant, Handshakegate.

But that doesn't mean that I'm going to pretend that she doesn't have the game and mindset to be a top player . .she does. That's been obvious for a while.

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

I suppose it's like following your favourite football team - not only do you display unreasonable passion for them, but you also seem to hate all of their rivals too

It appears to be similar here - you support your favourite player, and hold a grudge against anyone who has beaten them

Also, it's human nature to love seeing over confident people fall flat on their face, and Bouchard does seem hugely confident in herself for someone so young

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

Because she's a disrespectful Bieber/Reagan-adoring pretentious Republicon brainless blonde. And she's lame too.

"Sometimes we've wondered if Martina actually knew what she was saying. Maybe it was her age or inexperience or something got lost in the translation. But I don't know. She comes out with something astounding and then just stares at you like, 'What did I say?' But then she'll have that glint in her eye."
