Eugenie Bouchard didn’t play any clay-court tournaments leading up to the French Open, where she lost in the first round to Lesia Tsurenko.
But she is playing one after, in Lausanne immediately following Wimbledon.
The 25-year-old reached the semifinals there a year ago, when it was held in Gstaad. And so, she has 110 ranking points to defend.
Bouchard hasn’t entered either of the two clay-court events the following week, in Palermo, Italy and Jurmala, Latvia.
So it’s a clay one-off, between Wimbledon and the hard-court tournaments in the U.S. and Canada leading up to the US Open.
