Eugenie Bouchard reveals her surgery details

Former world No. 5 Eugenie Bouchard admitted she was scared before her surgery because because never before she had been under anesthesia. Bouchard suffered a torn subscapularis in her right shoulder in March and underwent a surgery three months later.

"But everything went perfectly,” Bouchard explained, per Tennis Up To Date.“However when I came to after the procedure I kinda freaked out and was super emotional lol. "My mom took videos. I'll have to show y'all one day.

It's too funny." Bouchard, now ranked at No. 250 in the world, would like to return to the Rome Masters next year. “Hopefully Rome in May 2022!” Bouchard replied to a question about a possible return to Italy.

“Last time I played Rome was 2016 can you believe it”.

Bouchard provided a positive update In October

Bouchard missed the rest of the season following her surgery but everything fine and she is expected to return to the courts in 2022.

"I saw the doctor last week and everything is on track and is going well, but he wants me to strengthen my shoulder a little bit more before I get back on court," Bouchard said on her Instagram story in late October.

"Everything is still on time, so I just need a few more weeks of intense PT and strengthening and then I can finally—five months later get on the court." Bouchard followed the US Open and said it was refreshing to see what Emma Raducanu and Leylah Fernandez did.

“We were all in this narrative, saying ‘Tennis is so hard on the players’ minds, they can’t compete with the pressure, media are going too hard on those kids,’ and then you get Fernandez and Raducanu coming, all lights out, big eyes, so happy just to be out there, enjoying the moment, not thinking about the backstage, the business,” Bouchard told Tennis Majors.

“They’re just playing the match and beating those players. It’s so refreshing, and the contrast is massive between them and Naomi feeling like she needs a break and has no joy out there."
