Genie Bouchard, known for dabbling in the past into sports commenting, joined the SportsNet team behind the scenes of the Omnium Banque Nationale in Montreal. "Back with @sportsnet! On in 5 min with my faves @jbow_87 and @brad10fay," Bouchard wrote on her Instagram Stories.
Commenting is one of the few things remained to do for Bouchard at the Montreal tournament where she lost both in singles and in doubles. In singles, she lost against Danielle Collins in the first qualifying round while in doubles, where she paired fellow Canadian Rebecca Marino, she bowed down to Jelena Ostapenko and Lyudmyla Kichenok.
Bouchard liked Eubanks' take on commenting
Genie Bouchard is not the only top ATP star who has experience as a sports commentator. The Canadian reacted to Chris Eubanks' opinion on commenting about the tennis world. "I think since I started doing a little bit of commentary, it really helps my perception on the court, I can take a little bit of the emotion and say, hey, if I was watching this match and calling it, what would I be telling myself? I plan on continuing to do it," said Eubanks.
Bouchard shared the American's words on Twitter and commented: "Love this!"
Roger Federer also may be commenting one day. "First I thought it would be cool to comment on matches of the generation of players I played against.
I know them best. But becoming a commentator in the year after my retirement didn't feel right. Maybe I will commentate one day, maybe never," Federer said as quoted in a past article. Since Federer denied to comment tennis matches for BBC, there were rumors Emma Raducanu may be doing so. "No plans to comment this year for the BBC!" Raducanu cleared the matter on Twitter.
