Canadian tennis player Eugenie Bouchard is working under the guidance of eight-time Grand Slam champion Jimmy Connors. This comes just days ahead of the prestigious US Open 2015 that begins Monday.

The 21-year-old Bouchard has been going through a rough patch in her career, having going through a horrendous 11-18 win-loss record this year which includes 15 defeats from her last 20 matches on the women’s tour.

As per a report by CBC Sports, Bouchard released a statement saying that she’s been friends with Connors, the former World No. 1, and that she will be working along with him for the season’s last major tournament.

She, however, added that the duo is not planning to indulge in a long-term coaching relationship after the US Open.
