Since 2020, the former world No. 5 has competed in just one major main draw, she has not yet commented on how pickleball would affect her WTA prospects.

Could Jack Sock and Eugenie Bouchard form a mixed doubles partnership next year? Perhaps, but if it happens, it won’t be on the tennis court.

“Wimby finalist. Not bad @ppatour LFG!” reacted John Isner on Instagram.

Sock concluded his final US Open last week, having publicly announced that he was switching from racquets to paddles.

On August 24, Dayana Yastremska defeated Eugenie Bouchard in three sets during the second round of US Open qualifying. With her lone participation in the main draw of a big tournament coming in 2020 at Roland Garros, the defeat marked the fifth consecutive time the 2014 Wimbledon finalist had failed to secure a spot in the main draw of a major event.

During a substantial portion of that timeframe, injuries disrupted her progress. The Canadian, a former world No. 5, faced a 17-month hiatus between 2021 and 2022 owing to a right shoulder injury. Despite the setbacks, she has achieved two tour-level victories this season.

Although Eugenie Bouchard has incorporated pickleball into her 2024 schedule, she has not provided any comments regarding the implications of this decision on her WTA future. The 29-year-old currently holds the No. 215 ranking.
