Personal life

Eugenie Bouchard was born to Michel Bouchard, an investment banker, and Julie Leclair in Montreal.  She has a fraternal twin sister, Beatrice, who is six minutes older. She also has two younger siblings, sister Charlotte (born 1995) and brother William (born 1999).  She and her twin sister are named after Prince Andrew’s daughters. Beatrice is named after Princess Beatrice of York, while Eugenie is named after Princess Eugenie of York. The youngest sister Charlotte is named after Charlotte Casiraghi.  The younger brother William is named after Prince William of Wales. She is fluent in both French and English.

Bouchard started playing tennis at the age of five and she is a member of Tennis Canada’s National Training Centre in Montreal. She attended The Study school in Westmount. At age 12, she moved to Florida with her mother to be coached by Nick Saviano,  where she met one of her best childhood friends, tennis player Laura Robson. From that time on, she was nicknamed “the chosen one” by her siblings.  Her father established a limited partnership called “Tennis Mania” to support Eugenie’s career. He and two investors contributed money to the partnership in exchange for 10 percent of Bouchard’s future earnings when she would become a professional tennis player. In August 2013, a court ruled that the partnership has no legal claims as Eugenie, then a 9-year-old, could not have reasonably agreed to giving away parts of her future earnings. Her father had argued that the money he had put into the partnership before Eugenie turned pro was a business loss which would have meant a tax benefit for himself.

At 15, Bouchard returned to Montreal for training.  A proficient student in mathematics and science, she once considered a career as a physician.  Her favourite tennis player is Roger Federer, whom she met in 2012 at the Wimbledon Ball. She described talking with Federer as a highlight of her life.  For the 2013 WTA Tour, Bouchard enlisted Nathalie Tauziat to coach and travel with her part-time. Under Tauziat, Bouchard transformed her defensive, retrieving tactics from junior level into a game of aggression.  Tauziat was let go after the season and Saviano committed to a more present role alongside Bouchard, for the 2014 WTA Tour. During the 2013 off-season she appeared on CTV’s The Social, as well as CTV Montreal as a guest weather anchor.
