Genie Bouchard is trying to do everything she can to get back to her 2014 level when at 20 years of age she managed to be ranked no.5 in the world.
In the following years, things got south, but finally, the Canadian Beauty is finding her way back. In Auckland, Genie reached the quarters in singles after playing rather good tennis, and she lost only 3-6 6-3 7-6(6) against Julia Goerges that eventually won the tournament.
Genie excelled in doubles pairing with Sofia Kenin. Together they managed to win the doubles Hourigan and Townsend 1-6 6-1 10-7.
Interesting enough this is only the second WTA title in Bouchard’s career after the one that she conquered in Nurnberg back in 2014 (in singles).
It’s a FIRST doubles title for Genie Bouchard at the #ASBClassic! She and partner Sofia Kenin defeat Hourigan/Townsend 1-6, 6-1, [10-7].
