Genie Bouchard is single and does not have a boyfriend, Justin Bieber

Genie Bouchard is the emerging star in the women’s tennis world and has already reached the finals of a major at age 20.

The Canadian youngster burst onto the scene at the Australian Open in January, where she reached the semifinals. She also reached the semis of the French Open, and now she’s in the finals at Wimbledon.

She’s awesome, she’s funny, she’s good looking … and she is single. That’s right, fellas, Genie Bouchard does not have a boyfriend.

And that’s what brings me to Justin Bieber.

Bouchard put Bieber on notice during an interview at the Australian Open. Bouchard cited the Biebs as someone she’d like to date when pressed. After reaching the finals at Wimbledon, Bouchard was pressed once again about progress on the Bieber front. Bouchard expressed interest in Bieber once again, but there was a condition: he needs to improve his image first.

But about this potential Bouchard-Bieber pairing … it all makes too much sense.

Bouchard was a teenager growing up in Canada when Bieber was becoming famous. I repeat: she was a teenage girl in Canada when Bieber was blowing up. Bieber is Canadian. Women love him and his music. And Bouchard loves reality trash TV and those sorts of personalities, too.

Bouchard is young, attractive, athletic and successful. You can’t ask for much more, Bieber. She’s much better than Selena Gomez. About the only obstacle here is height; Bouchard is 5-foot-10. Bieber is a shrimp. But that’s easily solved — we can put him in high heels.

If Bieber doesn’t jump on this, he’s definitely missing out. And for her sake, hopefully Bouchard will avoid getting caught up in any bad love triangles. Look no further than Caroline Wozniacki to see evidence of what a bad boyfriend can do to your career. Or look at Maria Sharapova and Grigor Dimitrov to see how it can help. Choose wisely, Genie. Choose wisely.

Genie Bouchard off the Justin Bieber train because of his bad image

Genie Bouchard best run at a major came in January and also happened to coincide with the time she first gained recognition among sports fans.

The young Canadian star reached the semifinals of the Australian Open earlier this year and also made headlines for saying she’d like to date Justin Bieber when pressed about her celebrity crush. After reaching the finals at Wimbledon Thursday, Bouchard was asked whether there’s been any progress on the Bieber front.

“I hope so,” Bouchard said when asked if her efforts have gotten her noticed by Bieber. “I’m putting in so much hard work. I want to see this hard work rewarded.”

The media continued to press Bouchard on the subject. She said they haven’t been in touch … and she’s also not sure if they should be.

“And he’s kind of been in trouble recently. I’m not associated with that at the moment,” she said with a laugh. “But if he cleans up his image maybe …”

Wait, so you’re saying there’s still a chance for it to happen? Bouchard definitely seems to have her head on straight, so I don’t think Bieber fits into that picture unless she decides to take the Jennifer Capriati career path. In other words, yeah, she’s too good for the Biebs. Then again, don’t all young girls love a bad boy?

Jim Parsons at Eugenie Bouchard’s Wimbledon matches – they’re friends

Eugenie Bouchard has a celebrity fan who is probably cooler than most tennis players’ fans.

The emerging Canadian tennis star is friends with actor Jim Parsons, who is best known for playing Sheldon on “The Big Bang Theory.” The actor even spent time at Wimbledon watching her play.

In a recent feature for New York Magazine, Parsons says the two came in touch because Bouchard is a fan of his show. They began emailing after her matches and have developed a pen pals sort of relationship.

“She played her first professional Wimbledon last year, and her manager contacted my manager, and apparently she watches Big Bang, and he knew I was a fan of tennis and he said, ‘Is there any chance Jim could come to Wimbledon? He could sit in the players’ box with us,’ ” Parsons recalled of the friendship during an interview with ESPN.

Parsons has been at Wimbledon for over a week watching Bouchard play and has even sat in her box for her matches.

“It was really beyond my expectations the chance to sit in the player’s box. She is a cold-hearted killer out there,” Parsons said.

The 20-year-old has reached the finals of the tournament, meaning Parsons’ stay at the All England Club has probably gone longer than he anticipated. Parsons shouldn’t mind; not only is he on vacation, but he enjoys sports. He describes himself as a sports fan who watches the Rockets, plays fantasy football and loves watching the Masters golf tournament.

While taking in Wimbledon, Parsons has been living it up. He took selfies with Chris Evert and Hannah Storm:

Agent thinks Genie Bouchard can become most marketable female athlete on planet

Genie BouchardIf there’s one thing Genie Bouchard’s management team isn’t lacking, it’s confidence. The agent for the 19-year-old Canadian tennis player believes his client can become the most marketable female athlete on the planet.

Bouchard’s agent, Sam Duvall, believes Maria Sharapova is the standard for marketable female athletes, but he thinks Genie can surpass the four-time major winner.

“Marketability-wise, I think she can be the most famous tennis player in the world,” Duvall told the Sydney Morning Herald.

“She’s got the personality, she’s got the game, she’s got the looks. She speaks two languages [French and English] and the crossover appeal is great. Aussie fans love her, French fans love her … I think she is very rare, let’s put it that way.”

Bouchard is from Montreal, where most residents are bilingual, which explains why she can speak English and French.

Bouchard has won just over $500,000 in career prize money and reached the semifinals of the Australian Open, which has been her best performance at a major thus far. Unfortunately, facing Li Na was a tough draw, but the advancement is a great sign about her future prospects.

“I really think she has the ability to be more marketable than Maria [Sharapova]. She speaks the two languages where the four grand slams are played. Maria was Genie’s idol when she was younger but now they’re competitors.

“But if Maria is the bar, Genie has the ability to exceed that bar. She has to perform on the court to do that, and Genie knows that. Maria has won four slams. Her marketability, if she [Bouchard] performs, I have to say is better than anyone on tour. She is the total package. It’s unbelievable how focused this girl is.”

Bouchard definitely has the potential to be marketable, she just has to take care of her end on the court by winning. You probably noticed how much Ana Ivanovic dropped off the map when she struggled after reaching the finals of the Australian Open and winning the French Open in 2008. It took her a few years to become relevant again. Caroline Wozniacki has also dropped off because of her play, but she’s had a boost thanks to her relationship with Rory McIlroy.

What does that tell us? I guess if Bouchard’s development as a player doesn’t go as planned, she can always date Justin Bieber to get her name out there.

Hey Genie Bouchard, Justin Bieber may want to date you back

Genie-BouchardGenie Bouchard has been one of the biggest stories at this year’s Australian Open. The 19-year-old women’s tennis star beat Ana Ivanovic in three sets on Tuesday to advance to the semifinals of the tournament. After the match, she fielded a question from a reporter about which celebrity she’d like to date. Bouchard confessed that it was Justin Bieber.

The crowd gave a collective grumble and moan that Bouchard is interesting in going on a date with this guy, but she should be glad she said something. According to TMZ, Bieber has watched the video and is flattered. He supposedly told his friends that he wants to get in touch with Genie as soon as possible.

Of course, Bieber could simply be being a nice guy. Although given some of the ridiculous trouble he has gotten into lately, we’re pretty confident saying the Biebs spends most of his time looking out for himself. Maybe he really does want to date Genie. We still think she can do better.

19-year-old Genie Bouchard has been one of the biggest stories on the women’s side of the Australian Open. The Canadian youngster advanced to the semifinals of the tournament by coming back to beat Ana Ivanovic in three sets in Melbourne on Tuesday.

After the match, Bouchard, who has gained many male fans during her run, was asked in her on-court interview with 7 Sports which celebrity she’d like to date. Bouchard was totally embarrassed by the line of questioning, but she did manage to sheepishly provide an answer.

“Justin Bieber,” she said.

Bouchard’s answer was not taken well by the fans, who mostly groaned or booed.

Bouchard was asked what she’d say to him if he were watching, and she gave a cute, flirty wave and smile:

Genie Bouchard

Look, Genie, you’re 19, emerging, and you look like the next big thing in women’s tennis. I want to like you. I really do. But despite being Canadian and all, you could not have given a worse answer. I mean Justin Bieber? You really like this guy?
