Bouchard is back in business
Genie Bouchard made a comeback to the WTA tour at this year's US Open, where she grabbed her first win after a long time of staying on the sideline.
Bouchard entered US Open using a protected ranking entry According to Eugenie Bouchard, she entered US Open using one of her protected ranking entries. “Due to my shoulder surgery, I get a limited number of protected ranking (PR) entries.
As much as I love Wimbledon and skipping it makes me sad, using a PR entry at a tournament with no ranking points doesn’t make sense. I must choose wisely and use my PR entries at tournaments that will help me get back to where I want to be.
I am continuing my training/rehab and plan on returning to competition later this summer. I will now use my two Grand Slam PR entries for the US Open and the Australian Open,” Bouchard said. Most recently, Bouchard played in the Korea Open, where she lost in the first round against Tatjana Maria (7-6, 7-6).
The Canadian player also announced her participation at the Transylvania Open, where Emma Raducanu and Grand Slam winner Barbora Krejcikova will also participate. Bouchard, however, will have to go through qualifications. Related: 2022 US Open champion to compete at Transylvania Open.
