Eugenie Bouchard eyeing comeback at French Open

Canadian tennis star Eugenie Bouchard has been out of action with a shoulder injury since June 2021, but she is aiming to make a return to the courts in time for the French Open.

The 28-year old tore her subscapularis muscle in March of last year, before opting to go under the knife in June. Bouchard has been on the long road to recovery since, and it appears she is nearing a return. The 2014 Wimbledon runner-up recently appeared as a special guest in the ‘Pardon My Take’ podcast. In that podcast interview, she talked about playing in the French Open this year in May.

"So, I am rehabbing from my shoulder surgery that I had last June, and the goal is to be playing tournaments very soon," revealed Bouchard. "I’m hoping for the French Open in a month. So, and then after that’s Wimbledon, which is like my favorite tournament. So, I’m gearing up for that."

Although the former World No.5 has not played in any tournament since her surgery, she did participate in an exhibition event in March and has been increasing her training sessions, as seen on clips posted to social media.
