Concussions Reach the Sport of Tennis, Hampering the Career of a Star

Young tennis star Eugenie Bouchard had the world by the tail in 2014, reaching the Wimbledon final as well as the semifinals at the Australian and French Open.

2015 has been anything but. And the year got progressively worse in September when she fell in the locker room after a third round match of the U.S. Open and suffered a concussion.file000996055093

Bouchard tried to come back at the China Open this week, but was forced to retire after she became dizzy in her opening match against Andrea Petkovic.

“I just asked her what happened, and she told me that she felt very dizzy,” Petkovic said in a press conference after the match. “Then I asked if it was the same, if it still was the concussion. She said, ‘Yeah, it tends to come back when she gets physically very active.’”
