ROLAND GARROS – Another day, more treatment, and more improvement in the state of Canadian Genie Bouchard’s right ankle.
Bouchard was out nice and early Sunday morning, playing a practice set with world No. 8 Johanna Konta of Great Britain. And it went well.
Coach Thomas Hogstedt mentioned in a television interview afterwards that Bouchard had “won” – which is always a result to be taken with a grain of salt when you’re talking about practice sets.
But it was an unusual result for Bouchard; she might have the worst practice-set record, well, ever.
More important was the state of her movement, 10 days after suffering a Grade 2 ankle sprain on the practice court in Nürnberg, Germany.
In a word? Better. Better than Saturday, which was better than Friday, etc. etc. But definitely far from 100 per cent.
The Canadian still has one more day to heal just a little more, before she makes her 2017 French Open debut against No. 72-ranked Risa Ozaki of Japan Tuesday.
