“So excited! But why’d they use my pic from junior Wimbledon 2012,” wrote Bouchard.

Eugenie Bouchard, who recently made a comeback at the Vancouver Open after a long time away from the courts, complained on her Instagram account about the photo used on her access credential.
According to Bouchard’s Instagram Stories, the initial credential featured a photo from her 2018 Sports Illustrated Swims*it edition photoshoot. In the picture, Bouchard wears a one-piece black swims*it. Yet, it’s not clear if the incident was a real one or just a joke from Bouchard because the Canadian tennis player followed up with an Instagram story showing a new non-sensual credential.
