Latest sensation in women’s tennis Eugenie Bouchard has requested something to her famous group of supporters, Genie Army. The Canadian star wants them to compose a new song for her based on one of Taylor Swift’s to motivate her when she is down during a match.
The 20-year-old, who had to dig deep after losing the second set to win her fourth round match (Read match report here), had some laugh during her post match press conference. She was asked if she has a favorite Genie Army song to which she replied, “Yeah, I got asked this I think after my first or second match and I said it’s the one where they go, ‘Genie is hot, hot, hot’ but since they have been singing a newer one, I think may be only from second or third round on.
It’s based on Ricky Martin’s song ‘Living La Vida Loca’. The seventh seed praised the members of Genie Army for their creativeness and efforts. She said, “They are creative to come up with such a random song and talk about forehands and backhands and stuff.
It’s pretty funny. “ Bouchard was asked if a new song from them gets her attention and she answered, “It does. I know when they star I will go like, Okay, it’s a new song. Like I know the beginning of it and I’m like, Okay, I am ready for the song.
When I hear a new one I am like ‘Oh that’s nice’. They have been working hard. Good to see I am not the only one working hard.”
