"I would say, definitely I wouldn't want to date someone in the tennis world" - Genie Bouchard shocks fans with her dating preferences

Canadian tennis player Eugenie Bouchard opened up that she wouldn’t want to date a man from the tennis world.

On a recent episode of the Golf, Mostly podcast, the former World No.5 discussed dating as a professional athlete and the qualities she looks for in a possible partner. Bouchard claimed that since tennis was the focus of her entire life, she wouldn't date anyone from the tennis world as it would be too much tennis.

"Well, I would say, definitely, I wouldn’t want to date someone in the tennis world because it would just be so much tennis, I feel like non-stop,” said Bouchard. “On the one hand, they would probably relate with you more than anybody, but on the other hand, it’s like my friends. My friends are mostly out of tennis and I like to text or call someone and talk about totally different stuff than tennis because my entire day is tennis, so I feel like the same would apply to dating."

She stated that her ideal partner would be someone athletic, confident, and humorous.

“Someone athletic is obviously ideal,” she added. “Respectful, but also confident. I think confidence is very attractive and someone who’s funny, personality matters. After a while, looks fade, and if this is someone who is going to be someone for the future, then you got to make each other laugh and be friends.”

The Canadian further mentioned that her busy tennis schedule makes it difficult for her to go on additional dates.

“You can be normal, socialize, go on more dates than usual, but normally it’s very hard,” she said. “Now look, I’m going to be on the road for a month and just going to be in my room doing room service, hanging out with my coach so that’s what I’m foreseeing for the next month."
