Canadian  tennis beauty Eugenie Bouchard said that when she is done with her playing career, she would start another career either in the fashion or food industry.

“I don’t think journalism. I always joked that I will open my own bakery because I can’t cook. The only thing I can do is bake. My siblings would make fun of me that they could imagine me becoming fat and eating my own cookies,” the 22-year-old Bouchard was quoted as saying in this week’s Sports Illustrated’s Tennis Beyond the Baseline podcast.

“Right now, I am getting into fashion and that should fit fine for me. I have never experienced college life as I always dreamt of being a professional tennis player since I was a nine-year-old kid. I am open to the possibility of going back to school after I stop playing,” she added.

Though she spends most of her time in Miami, Australia which is her favourite country. With a packed tennis calendar she doesn’t get much time to visit her family in Canada, but said that it’s technology like Snapchat which helps her keep in touch with them.

“My favourtite place at home in Canada has to be the couch. I feel comfortable and safe there,” added the World No. 51.

Her challenge now will be to do well in the first Grand Slam of the year — Australian Open.
