Bouchard still has 'love' for tennis

The 23-year-old Canadian enjoyed a strong start to her career and, having won the 2012 Junior Wimbledon title, she reached the final of the grass-court Grand Slam at the All England Club just two years later when she lost to Petra Kvitova.

Bouchard reached a career-high fifth spot in the world rankings later in 2014 but in the following three years her standing in the sport has been in steady decline.

She currently sits 73rd in the rankings, having failed to make it past the fourth round of her last 10 major tournament outings, while her most recent appearance in any tournament final was at the 2016 Malaysian Open.

But, when looking at her career, Bouchard is adamant that she has not lost any of her desire to continue playing, especially on the back of her training session with Andre Agassi in Las Vegas last week.

She said: "When things are not going well it's always tougher to see the love for it. But actually, recently I feel like I've had really disappointing results and right now my love for the game could not be any more.

"I took some time to train, to have the right people around me, to think - soul search in a way - and realize, OK, I love this, this is what I want to do."
