A couple of weeks of social-media silence from Genie Bouchard resulted in Twitter being a-buzz.
Her legion of fans was concerned.
And then, over the last few days, Bouchard resurfaced.
Which, of course, led to many relieved fans.
In the meantime, the Genie fan base was active.
One fan was understandably disappointed that Bouchard pulled out of the IPTL.
Many – many – had career advice.
Well, that pretty much ran the gamut, didn’t it? Thinking Richard Williams is probably out of the running.
And the haters had fun. One even deigned to speak for all of Canada, which is ballsy.
As for the other, well, he’s an egg.
There was even a bloggy rumour that involved some video from something that happened about nine months ago, blown up and re-Tweeted in rather nonsensical fashion.
The video in question was a brief clip from Bouchard’s promotional helicopter ride with Grigor Dimitrov at the Acapulco event last winter.
It looked to us as though she was looking over to see how Dimitrov tied up the rather complicated seat belt. This somehow turned into her gazing at him longingly, which turned into them having a secret tryst.
I mean, nothing like a black news hole for things to veer into the ridiculous.
Meanwhile, this young lad holds out hope for a rather unlikely event.
But you know what? Don’t ask, don’t get.
