Eugenie Bouchard is one of the most active players on social media. Following Roger Federer's Wimbledon final loss to Novak Djokovic last month, the Canadian player joked of having "pulled a Rog" on Instagram, imitating Federer's face following his loss, as you can see from the picture at the top of the article.
The Canadian made this joke after her loss to Tamara Korpatsch at the Lausanne Open, in which she had match points. Meanwhile, Bouchard, who has lost all the last seven first-round matches, is working with a new coach, Jorge Todero, from Argentina.
"Their co-operation started recently," said Sylvain Bruneau in an interview to The Journal de Montreal. "I speak to her often and she tells me everything goes well. We took a little agreement with this coach who is based in Florida."
Todero worked with the American Christina McHale in her only career-title in 2016 Tokyo. "Athletes can go through tough times, sometimes it takes more time. That's what happens with Eugenie. But we believe more."
Bouchard is now the world No. 114 as she lost 19 places after losing in Lausanne. Bouchard has taken a wild card into next week's Rogers Cup as well as Venus Williams and Maria Sharapova. We will see how Bouchard will handle the pressure of playing at home.
Bouchard achieved her best result there in 2016 losing to Lucie Safarova in the third round. She made her debut in the event back in 2008, losing to Abigail Spears in the first round of the qualifying draw.
