Is this a joke? When I do a search for that case#, nothing comes up.

What's the amount she's claiming? The USTA will schedule her on court 10 next year. :hysteric:

They must believe she doesn't have much ground to stand on as there was always the possibility of a out-of-court agreement.

lolol as a result of the fall her rankings have dropped and is likely to continue to drop

thats funny
I don't want to laugh at this as she did suffer a serious accident that could affect her for a long time and even call time on her career, but this I did find hilariously an accidental funny remark, surely the USTA defence will simply show her tour record prior to the US Open to counter this.

why funny? it's a certain that the rankings of a player is to drop if she can't participate in tournaments regardless the reason... :scratch:

This is the situation Stephanie Myles described in her report about the accident.
https://ca.sports.yahoo.com/blogs/eh-game/eugenie-bouchard-out-of-the-us-open-after-suffering-a-concussion-friday-night-224208365.html

According to Bouchard’s representatives, here’s what happened.

After a long day on the courts, with a nearly three-hour, three-set win in singles over Dominika Cibulkova then a match tiebreak victory in her first-round mixed doubles with Aussie Nick Kyrgios, Bouchard requested an ice bath late Friday night, after her press obligations were completed.

That was well after 11 p.m. To reach the ice-bath room from the locker room, players have to go through the training room.

At that hour, everyone was gone, and the room was pitch-black. As well, the floors had been cleaned and treated and were very oily.

A bit disoriented in the darkness, Bouchard slipped and fell on the floor – backwards – hit her elbow and then the back of her head quite severely.

She was examined by the medical staff at the tournament, then went to the hospital late that night but the classic symptoms of a concussion were nearly all in evidence: no vomiting, but migraine headaches the last two days, extreme sensitivity to light and sound, a very sore neck, and some dizziness.

Good luck trying to win this if she didn't turn on the light ... then again she's suing under US law so she might still have a chance :shrug:

I thought the different parties were negotiating a settlement.
I don't know what Genie is seeking as far as damages but one thing should happen as a result of this suit.

Players' health, safety, and security must always be properly provided during tournaments.
For some reason, the USTA failed to do so and Bouchard suffered injury as a result.
This should not have happened and hopefully won't ever happen again.
