EUGENIE Bouchard has wowed fans in a bikini as she enjoyed a winter break abroad – and revealed why she could never date a fellow tennis star.
It has not been the easiest year on the court for the Canadian as she continues to recover from injury.

But she did not let that ruin a relaxing holiday on the Turks and Caicos islands just off the Caribbean.
Bouchard took to Instagram to show off to fans her sun-kissed pictures.
The 28-year-old posed on the beach at the private Parrot Cay resort in a red bikini.
The star clings hold of a palm tree with the glistening sea behind her in one snap.

In other images she can be seen flashing a smile for the camera.
Her caption reads: “On vacay, don’t text.”
She said: “Well, I would say, definitely, I wouldn’t want to date someone in the tennis world because it would just be so much tennis, I feel like non-stop.
“On the one hand, they would probably relate with you more than anybody, but on the other hand, it’s like my friends.

“My friends are mostly out of tennis and I like to text or call someone and talk about totally different stuff than tennis because my entire day is tennis, so I feel like the same would apply to dating.”
The tennis beauty also revealed to the podcast what she looks for in a boyfriend.
She said: “[He needs to be] respectful, but also confident. I think confidence is very attractive and someone who’s funny, personality matters.
“After a while, looks fade, and if this is someone who is going to be someone for the future, then you got to make each other laugh and be friends.”
A shoulder injury for Bouchard in early 2021 required surgery and her time off the court has seen her slide down the WTA singles rankings.
It is a disappointing fall from a player who got to the final of Wimbledon in 2014.
But Bouchard has struggled to replicate those types of tournament runs since then.
