Canadian tennis star Eugenie Bouchard is known for her aggressive style of play and powerful groundstrokes in the women’s game. But, unfortunately, she has not appeared in the WTA Tour for over a half dozen months due to a tear on her shoulder.
Moreover, she stated that tear occurred during her first-round match at Guadalajara Open 2021 in Mexico. However, in the meantime, she underwent surgery for a torn subscapularis in her right shoulder in the first week of June. And later on, the Canadian began to work at Tennis Channel as a colour commentator.
After four months of rehabilitation, the former World No.5 has announced some good news for her fans and supporters.
“Hey guys so just want to give you a quick shoulder update I saw the doctor last week and he says everything’s on track and going well but he wants me to strengthen my shoulder a little bit more before I get back on court everything’s is still on time so I just need a few more weeks of intense and strengthening and then I can finally five months later get on the court you,” Bouchard said in her Instagram story.
As per Bouchard’s statement, she might be on the court before the upcoming Australian Open swing.
