Genie Bouchard reacts to bikini picture used in her Vancouver Open credential

Eugenie Bouchard made her return to tennis at the Odlum Brown VanOpen and was given quite the surprise upon her arrival in Vancouver.

The 28-year-old was left searching for an explanation when her tournament credentials a photo of her in a swimsuit rather than the typically used headshot. The swimsuit picture was taken back in 2018 as part of Sports Illustrated's cover shoot.

However, the 2014 Wimbledon runner-up saw the funny side of the situation, taking to social media to post an image of the tournament pass.

"Can someone from @vanopentennis credential office explain pls??" Bouchard wrote on Instagram with a laughing emoji.

The former World No. 5, who became the first Canadian to advance to a singles Grand Slam final at Wimbledon in 2014, received a new pass with a new photo shortly after. Apparently, the VanOpen player credentialing office was pranking the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Alum and had the new photo on standby.
