Glamorous tennis girl Eugenie Bouchard puts her horrible Australian Open campaign behind her as she soaks up the sun on a beach trip

The two remain friends to this day, though Bouchard says the fallout had been “ugly” with all of Goehrke’s girlfriends after they “hated me”.
All of his girlfriends literally hate me. We have talked a lot about that. Every girl she dates tells her, ‘Why would you want to hang out with me when you dated Genie?'” she said.
I’m ruining his love life. It’s so sad.
We go out once a year. I’m not a threat, relax.
