Bouchard is the 3rd ranked Canadian tennis player, right behind the 17 year old Leylah Fernandez. For context, Fernandez was 11 years old when Bouchard lucked her way to the 2014 Wimbledon finals.

I suspect her coach will quit or be fired 2020 Rogers Cup.

“Lucked her way”, she made 2 straight slam semis prior to that, beat 2 top 10 players and the average ranking of her opponent in her run was 27. Many, many other players since have had WAY easier paths to slam finals. Also, so what if Fernandez was 11 when she made the Wimbledon final? What “context” does that even give? That Fernandez is young? So? That literally has nothing to do with Genie, though.

Not the finish she was hoping for but what an amazing week from Eugenia :worship:. She really put in the hard work and turned her year around here!

Joke of a draw + Halep was literally on one leg during their SF match. So yes, "lucked her way" is correct.

Halp was still moving fine after she got injured. 😂😂 and how is beating an average ranking of 27 a “joke of a draw”? Get a brain. 🤦*♂

No, she wasn't, and she was missing routine shots left and right. Bouchard did okay to get to the SF (even though she was lucky Cornet took care of Serena for her) but she "won" the SF match on luck alone.

At least she still cares and is trying, unlike the player in their icon who decided to end her mediocre season after the USO. 🤷*♂

Mocking a 200+ ranked player competing in a challenger in the off-season who on top of it retires because of injury :lol:

Pathetic.

That was pretty much a 50/50 match at the time. She had a good chance of winning regardless. Serena literally lost early in 3/4 slams that year, were other players’ slam runs “lucky” just because she flopped too?

Good for Genie playing ITFs during the off-season. I definitely respect her for that. She knows what her level is and is still trying. :)

...and? I’m not the one who went out of my way to bring it up in attempt to belittle someone’s achievements...by comparing it a player who is 17 now, in a results thread. 🤣
It's simply a reality check for Bouchard's arrogance...
