Just watching an interview with Eugenie Bouchard. If you don’t follow tennis, then you might not know much about this woman. I find her refreshing and even as a non-tennis person, a joy to watch.
Bouchard has fought hard to keep up in the tennis rankings, or has she!? Her early exits from tournaments leave the Eugenie Army longing for her to get her groove back.
In 2014, Eugenie was a semi – finalist in two Grand-Slam events and a Wimbledon final loss had her ranked at No. 5 in the world. Today, the Quebec native is seeded at #70. But, I don’t think we have seen the last of this 23 year old.
She has, along with Milos Raonic, done a world of good for the sport of tennis in Canada. This coming from someone that really wouldn’t watch the game, unless I had an interest of some sort in it!
Sometimes injuries, sometimes tantrums, verbal barbs to more established players (Maria Sharapova), Eugenie gives us sound clips to think about. Calling out guys like Drake, as a fun person to hang with, yeah! she’s going to get the call back!
Same story as Eugenie is out of another tournament, the Rogers Cup. However, tennis never looked so promising in Canada.
On other fronts: the Roughriders are back on the practice field. Game day will be exciting with lots to prove, remember gang, we need to win on the road. And with a bye week coming up, Edmonton, Winnipeg looming large, you might want to stay in and study.
Sports. The games are real. Whether you are watching football, baseball, basketball, tennis or golf. The times are exciting with new look teams, old favorites and up and coming athletes taking front and centre. Summer sport like track and field, swimming and golf all have exciting twenty-something athletes pushing the field out of the way. They play fast and hard and make it exciting.
Absolutely love Jordan Spieth’s play. The talk and play method of walking fans through the game, even though that’s not what he is doing is fun to watch!
Also just listening to a Q & A for the PGA Championships, allows you in on his reflections of the highs and lows, analysis of how his game is maturing and his own expectations. It’s beyond his years. I guess, when you’ve worked on your skill set and believe in what you do, why wouldn’t you sound this way!
Genie, maybe you should watch some of these segments too.
