For Eugenie Bouchard, the Rogers Cup, whether it takes place in Montreal or Toronto, is like home. She knows restaurants and best places very well but she has not been giving any advice on where to go to other players. Bouchard is working with a new coach, Jorge Todero, and so she has been focused on tennis lately.
"No one's really asked me what to do," said Bouchard. "I've been busy training, I haven't chatted that much. It's been a couple of weeks now and I really like (Todero). It's going well. We're trying to change a couple of things, so it's definitely going to be a process but I think it's the right process."
On how Todero is helping her, the former top-five player added: "I don't want to get in to too many specifics (about training). Just a couple of technical things on my shots. Also court positioning, really keeping in mind the essence of my game.
Also just putting in a lot of hours." Bouchard's first-round opponent Bianca Andreescu said: "(Bouchard) hits the ball really hard, and she likes to take the ball early. She has a really good serve. She likes to take control right from the start of the point.
That can be difficult for a lot of players but I played her in Newport and I really think I did a really good job of employing the right tactics. I like to change up the rhythm and I think that threw her off a little bit."
