The struggling Eugenie Bouchard dipped down to the ITF Futures level this week looking for some match wins. Bouchard is ranked 56 in the world but hasn’t won a match since Australia, losing her last five.

So the 23-year-old signed up to play the $80K ITF clay event this week in Indian Harbour, Florida. Bouchard won her first two rounds but lost in the quarterfinals to Vicky Duval 60, 63.

Duval, who was once ranked No. 87, is down to No. 896 as she continues her comeback from Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The 21-year-old American was playing in her first event since Wimbledon, but she lost in the semifinals to Amanda Asimova.

Meanwhile, Bouchard is still in battle with the USTA over her fall at the 2015 US Open, which will now head to trial after failed attempts at mediation. And she even lost a bet on twitter!

In her last nine WTA events, Bouchard has lost in the first round at seven of them. She did make the semifinals at Sydney and the third round at the Australian Open.

2014 Nurnberg remains her only career title. Sh reached two finals last year.

SG1 Says:

You hate to say someone’s done but it sure feels like it with Genie. She jumped the shark with the two slam semis and 1 slam final in 2014. Never the same after that loss to Kvitova.


RZ Says:

@SG1 -Bouchard is still young, though, so she has time to turn things around. She just needs to get her scrappiness back. That’s what got her into all those semis and the one final, more than her shots and strokes. It’s also hard to say how much an impact that concussion had.

That being said, what an amazing win for Vicky Duval after battling cancer!
