Eugenie "Genie" Bouchard began playing tennis at the age of five and was inspired by her parents, who were both athletes. Bouchard is known for her aggressive playing style, powerful serve, and athleticism on the court.
Bouchard's tennis career began to take off in 2012 when she won the Junior Wimbledon title. She also reached the semifinals of the US Open and the quarterfinals of the Australian Open that same year. Her success continued in 2013 when she reached the semifinals of the Australian Open and the French Open, and the final of Wimbledon. She became the first Canadian to reach a Grand Slam singles final, where she ultimately lost to Petra Kvitova.
In 2014, Bouchard reached a career-high ranking of World No. 5 after a successful run at the Australian Open, where she reached the semifinals. She also reached the semifinals of the French Open and the final of the Wimbledon doubles tournament that year. She continued to have a strong 2014 season, reaching the semifinals of the US Open and the WTA Finals.
Bouchard's career has been marked by both highs and lows. After her breakout season in 2014, she struggled with injuries and a loss of form. In 2015, she parted ways with her longtime coach, Nick Saviano, and has since had a string of coaching changes. She has also had to deal with criticism of her off-court activities, including her social media presence and modeling appearances.
Despite these challenges, Bouchard has continued to play at a high level. In 2017, she reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open and the semifinals of the Sydney International. She also reached the final of the Istanbul Cup that year. She has also been successful in doubles, reaching the final of the French Open in 2016 and winning the Wimbledon mixed doubles title in 2018.
Off the court, Bouchard has become known for her modeling and social media presence. She has been featured in Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue multiple times and has also appeared in campaigns for brands such as Nike and Coca-Cola. She has a strong social media following, with over 2 million followers on Instagram.
Bouchard's career has been marked by a mix of impressive on-court performances and off-court controversies. However, she remains one of Canada's most successful tennis players and a popular figure in the tennis world.
According to the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), as of May 2023, Bouchard has earned a total of $8,303,291 in prize money from singles and doubles tournaments. She has also earned additional income from endorsements and sponsorships with companies such as Nike, Coca-Cola, and Babolat.
In 2014, Bouchard earned $6.2 million in prize money alone, making her the second-highest earning female tennis player that year behind Serena Williams. This was largely due to her success in Grand Slam tournaments, where she reached the semifinals or better in all four events.
However, Bouchard's earnings have decreased in recent years as she has struggled with injuries and a loss of form. In 2020, she earned just $48,318 in prize money, due in part to the limited number of tournaments held during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2023 she shared on social media that she would turn her attention to Pickleball. Despite this Pickleball move Eugenie Bouchard announced to return to Team Canada for the Billie Jean King Cup Finals with Bianca Andreescu omitted.
