Former World No. 5 Eugenie Bouchard is currently training in Las Vegas, according to Sylvain Bruneau of Tennis Canada. Bruneau says, "She is in a great state of mind. I talked to her last week. She is in Las Vegas, where she trains with Gil Reyes, the former fitness coach of Andre Agassi.
She is ultra-motivated, she is working like never before, and I saw that she had a wild card for the main draw at the Auckland tournament, before going to the qualifiers for the Australian Open." The 25-year-old Bouchard is now ranked No.
215 in singles. She recently ended a 13-match winning streak dating back to February by reaching the third round of the Oracle Challenger Series in Houston. When she was recently interviewed by the Las Vegas Review Journal about Reyes, Bouchard had commented, "Gil [Reyes] is one of the most amazing people I've met.
Words can not describe what it means to be able to train with him and to be able to consider him as my mentor." Bouchard has received a wild card for the ASB Classic and will then head to Melbourne to play in the qualifying draw of the Australian Open.
Bouchard had her best year in 2014 when she reached the final at Wimbledon losing to Petra Kvitova and the semifinals of the 2014 Australian Open and 2014 French Open. Her ranking of No. 5 made her the first Canadian female tennis player to be ranked in the top 5 in singles, and that was recently bested by Bianca Andreescu, who won the US Open title in September.
