Canadian tennis player Eugenie Bouchard has faced backlash from fans after her recent comments about former champions Maria Sharapova and Simona Halep. Bouchard, who famously defeated Sharapova at the Madrid Open in 2017, recently tweeted, “There’s something about playing dopers in Madrid” after her victory over Dayana Yastremska, who was previously accused of doping but cleared of any wrongdoing. However, Bouchard’s tweet was short-lived as she deleted it two hours later.
The tennis community was quick to react to Bouchard’s comments, with many fans calling it “karma” after she lost her match against Martina Trevisan at the Madrid Open. Some fans criticized Bouchard for her trash-talking antics, which have made her a polarizing figure in the sport. Others accused her of being disrespectful to Sharapova and Halep, who have both faced doping allegations in the past.
Despite the criticism, Bouchard remains focused on her career and has not yet responded to the backlash. She will continue to compete in upcoming tournaments, with the hope of regaining her previous form and success. However, her recent comments may have damaged her reputation among fans and players alike, and it remains to be seen if she can recover from the backlash.
