So if you didn’t know, Maria Sharapova just returned from a 15 month steroid ban to the dismay of most tennis players. Essentially, no one on the tour wanted her back and thought she should’ve been banned for life. One of the biggest advocators of this movement was the lovely Eugenie Bouchard and she spoke her mind without any restraint.

“She’s a cheater and I don’t think a cheater in any sport should be allowed to play that sport again,”

“I think from the WTA it sends the wrong message to young kids: cheat and we’ll welcome you back with open arms,” Bouchard said.
“I don’t think that’s right and definitely not someone I can say I look up to any more because it’s definitely ruined it for me a little bit.”

“I was inspired because I had a lot of players coming up to me privately, wishing me good luck,” Bouchard said in a news conference, without naming anyone.

“They were players I don’t normally speak to and I got a lot of texts from people in the tennis world that were just rooting for me. I wanted to do it for myself, but also for all these people.”

Bouchard came into this tournament on a six match losing streak, but you know she saw Sharapova’s name in the headlights and turned her game to a new level. She was 0-4 against the Russian coming into yesterday’s match, but that’s old news now. I LOVE Genie not holding anything back before, during, and after the match. That handshake at center court after the win was hilariously awkward. Just two women who do not like each other at all. I never liked Sharapova and thought she was a legit robot on the court, but now that she got caught with steroids she can go fuck herself. Props to Genie on the win and for backing up her shit talking on the court. Love you Genie.
