Tennis - Canada's Eugenie Bouchard has climbed more than 100 spots in the rankings over the past 12 months but one look at her music taste and you realise that she is your typical teenager off the court. In an interview with CNNSI, the 19 year old, who is through to the quarter finals of this week's WTA Premier event in Tokyo, says she would like to meet pop star Justin Bieber.
"I’m going to go with Justin Bieber. He gets so much hate, but I like some of his songs. And I respect him because he came from nothing and he became this mega-superstar and he does have talent. I don’t know if you’ve seen his movie … Honestly, people who didn’t really like him actually were amazed at the movie.
You see videos of him playing drums when he was 2 years old, and how he really became what he is. He played guitar outside of Starbucks, just trying to play and make money, and he put videos on YouTube and then finally became something.
And he’s Canadian, so I support him. Well, I hear about it in the news. I don’t have to go looking for it. Everyone kind of knows. I can just imagine how tough it is for him to keep his feet on the ground.
But, yeah, obviously he’s being a little teenager gone wild." .
