Bouchard taking break to “get healthy”

Genie Bouchard, eliminated quickly at both Indian Wells and Miami, is taking a break of undetermined length.

She withdrew from Monterrey this week, and Bógota, Colombia next week.

But Bouchard also hasn’t entered the Madrid, or Rome main draws, or any of the smaller spring clay tournaments – although the deadline for Strasbourg isn’t until Monday.

Sources tell Tennis.Life that Bouchard, currently in Montreal spending time with her father and siblings, is taking a break “to get healthy.”

Meanwhile, Coach Michael Joyce – in limbo along with trainer Scott Byrnes – is in the U.K., doing some clinics and appearances.
