60 seconds with Eugenie Bouchard


Eugenie Bouchard, the junior Wimbledon champion, talks to The Tennis Space about Blake Lively, shoe shopping, and cooking her “specialty” – macaroni cheese in the microwave.

The actress I would like to play me in a film about my life: Blake Lively.
If I wasn’t a tennis player I would be: A doctor.
I never travel to a tournament without: I would have to go with my iPod. I cannot go on a plane or anywhere without it.
My favourite city on tour: Melbourne or maybe Milan.
The last place I went to on holiday: Nowhere. I don’t take holidays. When I’m on vacation, I just stay at home and chill.
My favourite restaurant on tour: Anywhere in New York City. I’m always excited to go there.
My favourite shop on tour: That’s hard. Any designer store.
The last movie I watched: Savages.
The last album I listened to: Kanye West.
The last meal I cooked: That would be my specialty – macaroni cheese in the microwave.
The last time I broke a racket: I haven’t done that for a very, very long time. I’m a silent brooder. I keep it all inside.
Grass, hard or clay? Grass.
Sand or snow? Sand. Oh my god, for sure.
Given a choice of superpowers, between being invisible and flying, I would choose: To be invisible.
If I won the lottery I would spend the money on: Shoes. And helping the poor.
