Eugenie Bouchard Slams Maria Sharapova: Cheaters Should Be Banned For Life

Zimbio

There is certainly an opening for world’s No. 1 women’s tennis player with Serena Williams taking time off to start a family. Vying for position means winning matches and definitely talking trash to your opponents on and off the court. Eugenie Bouchard might be moving up in the trash-talk rankings after completely destroying Maria Sharapova last week.

The Canadian tennis star would not have Sharapova — or any cheater — play in her tennis organization. Bouchard told the Turkey’s broadcaster TRT World:

“I don’t think that’s right. She is a cheater and so to me, I don’t think a cheater in any sport should be allowed to play that sport again. It’s so unfair to all the other players who do it the right way and are true.”

Amazing.

Sharapova, a five-time Grand Slam champion of the sport, was suspended for 15 months after a doping violation. Sharapova has been under fire since being reinstated.

The Russian star won her first match since returning to the courts Wednesday in a first-round matchup at a German tournament.

Bouchard, who is ranked No. 59 in the world and is a 2014 Wimbledon finalist, still did not hold back when talking about Sharapova.

“I think from the WTA it sends the wrong message to young kids: ‘Cheat and we will welcome you back with open arms.’ I don’t think that’s right and definitely she is not someone I can say I look up to anymore.”
