Eugenie Bouchard decides to take a break from tennis
According to website tennis.life, the Canadian former world number five has not entered any of the clay season tournaments in a bid to "get healthy."
Eugenie Bouchard has decided to take an indefinite break from the WTA Tour to “get healthy,” according to reports.
Bouchard, who reached the final at Wimbledon and the semis at both the French and Australian Opens in 2014, rising to a career high number five in the world the same year, has been struggling for form recently despite a climb from 194 to 76 in the rankings and according to website tennis.life will not play in any of the upcoming tournaments on the European clay courts having not registered for the main draws in Rome and Madrid.

Bouchard started off 2019 with an encouraging tournament in Auckland, where she reached the quarter-finals in singles and won the doubles title with Sofia Kenin but results dropped off again after that and she failed to get past the qualifying rounds at the Qatar Open and Miami either side of a first-round loss to Kirsten Flipkens at Indian Wells.
The 25-year-old may be nursing an injury and has been spending time with her family in Canada after pulling out of the Monterrey Open this week and withdrawing from Bógota.
