‘Anybody Is Least Prepared’ – Eugenie Bouchard on How Instant Fame Jolted Her Tennis Career

28-year-old tennis star Eugenie Bouchard rose to fame when she became the only Canadian player to be in the finals of a Grand Slam. Eugenie won hearts of millions when she climbed up the draws to reach the final of the 2014 Wimbledon Championships.

Bouchard’s supporters usually call her Genie and she is known for living her life in her own accord. Adding to that, she also has a huge following on social media. Eugenie is a much-celebrated player as she keeps on trending even though she hasn’t been playing since March 2021.

Eugenie Bouchard Wasn’t Ready
Although people often surround Bouchard with speculations of losing her focus because of getting drawn into stardom, she has proved them wrong several times. However, while speaking to the Tennis channel in a podcast, the Canadian star admitted that she initially didn’t know how to deal with the fame that came her way.

“Yes, I agree with that fame comes quickly with it (tennis). I think that’s the part that most athletes or anybody is really least prepared for.”

Bouchard added, “You are training and planning for results and you are expecting these results. But I wasn’t prepared for the thing that would come with it. Like no one knows ahead of time. You don’t really wanna prematurely do that either, because if that never comes, you don’t wanna start thinking bigger than you are.”
