Eugenie Bouchard Hopeful of Regaining Lost Form, Talks About Pressure

Nothing has been going well for Eugenie Bouchard this year. That she reached the semi-finals of two Grand Slams in the previous season, she has emerged as one of challenging tennis players on the women’s circuit. But, her quarter-final loss to Maria Sharapova in Melbourne at the start of the year acted as a bane to her season, it seems!

Ever since that defeat, Bouchard has struggled to stage decent performances on a consistent basis, let alone pulling off triumphs. Her appalling win-loss record of 10-15 speaks everything, in a nutshell. However, the 21-year-old is aiming to put the past behind as she kick-starts her quest to get hold of her absconding form.

“I learned a lot (this season). I’ve learned to deal with my patience a little bit. I’ve learned that things won’t always go well and, you know, that’s fine,” Bouchard told at a kids tennis clinic, as quoted by National Post. “But it’s also time to try to change things, try to turn things around cause it’s definitely not how I want to be playing,” she added.

Up next, Bouchard is scheduled to feature in the Rogers Cup in Montreal. Asked if the pressure at playing at home will act as constrain, she responded:  “I don’t feel added pressure. I feel more motivation. I feel like I don’t get to play often in Canada, so I kind of want to show everyone at home what I can do and just kind of feel that extra support and just enjoy it.”
