ELLE (Canada) - - Body -

Eu­ge­nie “Ge­nie” Bouchard has the ten­nis world in a trance. ELLE Canada sat down with the 20-year-old Cana­dian pro to talk carbs and com­mit­ment. WHAT’S A TYP­I­CAL DAY LIKE FOR YOU? “I spend most of my time on the ten­nis court. I wake up at eight o’clock and eat fruit, or­ange juice and eggs. Then I hit the court for four hours be­fore head­ing to the gym.” FAVOURITE FOOD? “I adore Ital­ian food. As an ath­lete, I eat a lot of carbs, and in Italy the food is just so de­li­cious. Ev­ery­thing they make is fresh and straight from the gar­den.” GREAT­EST STRENGTHS, ON AND OFF THE COURT? “I stay calm and con­sis­tent. I don’t think I’m nat­u­rally an emo­tional per­son. I’m very dis­ci­plined and fo­cused when I need to be. If I say I’ll do some­thing, then I’ll com­mit.” STEPHANIE LA LEGGIA
