Open Court


Genie and the baby (pics)

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. – Nothing like a gorgeous baby to turn everyone to mooooosh.

The beautiful tot in question is Rain Harlow, the 14-month-old daughter of Canadian coach Rob Steckley (currently working with Lucie Safarova).

Of course, a pic with the rising queen of women’s tennis was necessary for little Rain, so Bouchard was happy to oblige.

Let’s just say that the passing of the baton was not a smooth one.


Check out the faces around them – notably Safarova and doubles specialist Horia Tecau. No way not to smile around a baby.

Here is the result of Steckley’s photography.


There was sort of a “sack-of-potatoes” vibe about this effort. But Bouchard will surely have to pose with a lot of moms and babies as she rises up the rankings, so she’ll get better at it with practice. 🙂

(Pic from Rob Steckley’s Instagram – she’s no Michaela Bryan (who is?), but she did snap with both Red Foo AND Gavin Rossdale. That has to be unique on some level although it wasn’t both at the same time).
