Dropshots: Eugenie Bouchard To Be Coached Again By Nick Saviano

Eugenie Bouchard and Nick Saviano with Wimbledon runner-up plate

Adding a little something I’m calling Dropshots & Chip-ins. Not full posts…just a thought or two about something in the world of tennis (dropshots) or women’s golf (chip-ins). So for the first dropshot, let me say that I’m pleased to see Eugenie Bouchard return to being coached by Nick Saviano. She worked with him, beginning when she was 12 years old and had her best success under his tutelage. She had an “ad hoc” partnership with him at Charleston and will return to being coached by Saviano at Roland Garros. Best of luck to Genie and Nick. Bouchard is great for the tour. I’d love to see her return to the success she had in 2014 when she was the Wimbledon runner-up, making at least the semifinals in the first 3 Majors that season.

  1. Ahh the revolving door of coaches in the WTA. Back to where Eugenie started from. Didn’t Saviano briefly coach Sloane Stephens? Just saw Garbi Muguruza lose to Begu yesterday and IMHO she should dump Sumak (sp) and go and beg Carlos Rodriguez to quit the Chinese commitment he has, and be her coach. He would be a calming influence to her and he speaks Spanish as well. He really helped Li Na hone her game and eventually win the Australian Open.

    • Yes, Nick did work with Sloane. Speaking of Sloane, talk about feast or famine this year. She either wins the tournament or exits early. Muguruza is the player that to me has underperformed. Garbine has it all, talent-wise. Maybe a move to Rodriguez would fix what ails her.
