Genie Bouchard is now in Antwerp where she will play the local WTA event as seed no.1. During an interview the Canadian took advantage to talk about her new coach Sam Sumyk .

Bouchard: He is what I wanted…

Genie commented “I’ve just started working with Sam. We’ve spent some time training in Montréal the past week or so, and now we’re here for our first tournament together. I really respect him as a coach – he’s done great things. Nothing is guaranteed, but I hope he can help me improve and help me reach my goals.

When I was looking for a coach I wanted someone who’s played or who’s been coaching someone who’d been there, getting to No.1 or winning Grand Slams, and he’s done that. He’s what I wanted.”

… I am keeping my game style

Then she added “But generally I’m keeping my game style. Each coach has their own philosophy and their own ideas. I want to keeping playing the aggressive way I like to play, but we’ll be changing a few things here and there. I’m always trying to improve, and that’s the point of a new coach – hearing a new voice.”

Genie will play her first match against Mona Barthel. Heat to head is 1-0 for Genie.
