Eugenie Bouchard hits shot on her butt

- April 29th, 2014


Eugenie Bouchard’s rise up the tennis ranks has a lot of people floored, including herself.

The 20-year-old Canadian tennis star was playing an opening round match-up at the Portugal Open against Russia’s Alisa Kleybanova when she hit an incredible return from her butt.

Bouchard won the first set 6-4, but Kleybanova had the second-seeded Bouchard in a pickle as she was trying to grab an early lead in the second set.

Bouchard got caught up in the clay, but didn’t give up on the play (like the good ol’ Canadian gal she is), and hit an incredible backhand to take the point.

It’s plays like this that have endeared the Westmount, Que. native to Canadian tennis fans.

Bouchard went on win the second set 6-1, and advanced to the second round of the tournament.

Meanwhile, Genie’s Army continues to grow.
