No Great Loss to Tennis

While some fans are devastated by Bouchard's move, others feel that her fall in the tennis rankings means she won't be missed in the more traditional sport. One observer even stated, "It's ok for ex-tennis players to make a living in a less demanding sport."

Bright Future in Pickleball

Although Bouchard hasn't officially retired from tennis, she has signed with pickleball starting next year. She follows in the footsteps of former men's tennis player Jack Sock, who also made the switch after the US Open. Bouchard is hoping for a successful future in pickleball.
