Bouchard wrote 'there's something about playing dopers in Madrid', with the tweet deleted soon after but other outlets republishing it which saw the likes of Patrick Mouratoglou condemn it.
Mainly due to Yastremska who she beat in the first round who had her initial doping ban rescinded and now the Canadian has issued an apology on Friday evening.
"There's something about playing dopers in Madrid": Bouchard revives trash talk with tweet referencing to Sharapova and Yastremska
Writing on Twitter, she said that she didn't mean to cause harm and that she apologizes for not having all her facts straight.
"I want to apologize for my tweet yesterday. It was a lapse in judgment, and unnecessary. Though I’ve always championed fair play, I didn’t have all my facts in order and certainly didn’t mean to cause harm. I’m going to continue to work on myself going forward, both on and off the court," she said on Twitter.
