Genie Bouchard excited for grass-court season, Wimbledon
via Excelle Sports
Genie Bouchard is extremely excited for the grass-court season and the upcoming Wimbledon Championships.
The Canadian tennis player has had an up-and-down 2017 season thus far, as she struggled for the first several months of the year but seemed to turn a corner in Madrid when she defeated Maria Sharapova and WTA No. 1 Angelique Kerber. But after suffering an ankle injury at the Nuremberg Cup, just prior to the French Open, she was ousted in the second round of the Grand Slam event after falling to Anastasija Sevastova. Bouchard, 23, hopes she will be able to find some consistency on the grass courts—her favorite playing surface as she was a Wimbledon finalist in 2014—over the next few weeks.
As players begin to prepare for the grass-court season, which culminates with Wimbledon, Bouchard posted a photo on Instagram with the perfect caption: “GRASS.”
