Open Court


Oz Open pics: Genie Bouchard, Tuesday practice

MELBOURNE – Less than 12 hours after she posted an impressive first-round win over Louisa Chirico at the Australian Open, Genie Bouchard was back on the practice court.

It was a much more low-key court situation – off the Oz Open site next door at the Tennis Australia national centre, where there are five additional practice courts for the players during the tournament. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was right next door.

The autograph and selfie seekers still had no trouble finding her. 🙂

Bouchard worked it for about an hour and 15 minutes  in the big-time heat, and hit a Nike sponsors’ booth afterwards.

She plays Shuai Peng on Hisense Arena sometime late Wednesday afternoon.

Here’s a look.
