As Genie Bouchard ponders her next move late in this 2017 season, there’s a dearth of live action for her many fans.

Bouchard, just 16 at the time, was playing in her third Oz Open juniors. She dismissed Mana Ayukawa of Japan 6-1, 6-0 and lost to doubles partner Monica Puig in the semis.
A lot has changed: note the adidas kit (a pretty good one back then) and the Wilson racket. Now, it’s Nike and Babolat.
