Canadian tennis star Eugenie Bouchard has targeted her way back into the Top 10 of world rankings after an injury layoff sidelined her for about two months. The 22-year-old had suffered from concussion at the US Open last year after she fell onto the floor in locker room.

Bouchard, who is scheduled to feature in her first tournament in Doha next week since her second-round exit at the Australian Open in January, said that although she is positive of paving her way back to the top in the rankings, she knows that it will be a long process.

“I will take one tournament at a time. One week at a time,” the 61st-ranked Bouchard was quoted as saying by The Peninsula. “I can’t put pressure on myself right away. It (Top 10) will take some time. It is going to be a long journey after missing so many months because of injury.

“I mean I feel I am playing at a better level than I was last year,” she assessed. “I know I can do it. It will take a lot of steps to get there. I know I am able to do great things in this sport so I am going to try and do that. The goal is to be better always.”

Meanwhile, the unseeded Bouchard is slated to cross the swords with Latvian qualifier Anastasija Sevastova in the first round of the WTA Premier – Qatar Total Open 2016 in Doha that begins from Monday.
