Milos Raonic consoles Eugenie Bouchard
World No. 6 Milos Raonic came out in the support of his compatriot Eugenie Bouchard, who crashed out of the Rogers Cup in the second round on Tuesday as she failed to live up to the high expectations of her home fans.

Top Canadian Milos Raonic, who himself had a tough day against American Jack Sock, came out with words of encouragement for the Wimbledonfinalist Eugenie Bouchard who collapsed under the immense weight of expectations of her fans when she took on Shelby Rogers on Tuesday. Thousands of her home supporters gathered inside the Uniprix Stadium to witness their favourite star on Tuesday.

“I just wanted her to sort of forget it as quickly as possible,” Raonic said. “Grand scheme of things, whatever may happen, obviously you want to play well, but people, she will realize people are not going to remember Montreal. They’re going to remember at the end of this year Wimbledon, Paris, and Melbourne. Not Montreal.”

Raonic too was in a spot of bother during his opening round match as he lost the opening set of the match. However, he  managed to keep his hopes alive in the Rogers Cup as he dug deep to win the next two sets in the tie-breakers. After the early exits of Bouchard and VasekPospisil, the World No. 6 is the lone Canadian left in the ATP-WTA event.

“I feel like there is a certain discomfort for him against me, but I’m sure he feels the exact same way,” said Raonic who also beat Sock last week en route to the Washington title. “I know I sort of have the edge on sort of getting over that hump when it comes to those tighter moments. I know no matter how bad things might be going, for us to get in that situation I can tip things in my favor.”

Too much of pampering can also be counter-productive sometimes.
