She withdrew from Monterrey this week, and Bógota, Colombia next week.

But Bouchard also hasn’t entered the Madrid, or Rome main draws, or any of the smaller spring clay tournaments – although the deadline for Strasbourg isn’t until Monday.

Sources tell Tennis.Life that Bouchard, currently in Montreal spending time with her father and siblings, is taking a break “to get healthy.”

Meanwhile, Coach Michael Joyce – in limbo along with trainer Scott Byrnes – is in the U.K., doing some clinics and appearances.
