Eugenie Bouchard

Eugenie Bouchard is taking the steps necessary to be a top player.

The young Canadian tennis player reunited with her old coach during the offseason and is building a new team around her. She is just 22-years-old and has already reached as high as world No. 5 on the WTA Tour in 2014. Since then, however, Bouchard has slipped in the rankings.

At such a young age though, Bouchard has what it takes to be a consistently top ranked player. She is already proven when it comes to major tournaments, having advanced to a finals at Wimbledon in 2014 along with multiple semifinals that same year.

Look for Eugenie Bouchard to come into her own over the next several years. Her offseason moves could have set her up for a big 2017 WTA Tour.
