In a press conference following her loss to Bianca Andreescu in Toronto, Eugenie Bouchard spoke about her love for the crossword puzzles. The Canadian player considers herself crossword queen of the WTA tour. The former world No.
5 Canadian player said: "Yeah, it's the first time I really experienced the gaming world. And, you know, I heard the winner of Fortnite recently made $3 million, so I might pick up video games. (Smiling.) I mean, that's crazy, that's impressive, and it's a whole world I never knew.
In terms of crosswords, I mean, I don't really want to talk about how much of a dork I am, okay? Let's move on. (Smiling.)" Bouchard also spoke about tennis and her desire to keep competing despite being outside the top 100 rankings: "I feel like I've matured and just I've put things in perspective a lot more.
So, you know, playing tennis for a living is the most unbelievable thing, and I feel so blessed and lucky in my life. So losing a match is really nothing in the grand scheme of things. And I just really am enjoying it a lot more now, and on the court, I'm staying more positive, and I'm fighting, and, you know, that's all I can do.
So whatever happens, happens. And I have to trust the process, as Joel says." Analyzing her loss, Bouchard concluded: "I think it was a solid match from me and the best I've played since I've come back from injury.
You know, she's 20 in the world. She's a great player. So to battle with her till 6-4 in the third gives me confidence and just motivates me to work even harder."
