As the WTA calendar has now fully entered into the grass court swing, Wimbledon Championships is invariably the highlight of the upcoming weeks. Three years ago, a 20-year-old Rising Star from Canada stormed into the WTA Tour delivering some outstanding Tennis. It was Eugenie Bouchard who made it to the semis of the first three Grand Slams of 2014 season capping those results by reaching the women's singles final at Wimbledon. But a lot has changed since then and now she is roaming around the 50th place in the ranking.

A full load of talent that seems to go down the river pretty quick. Whether it was about an injury or the lack of motivation, Bouchard lost her path.

What should've become a ruler of the game is now just another name within the pack. This week, the Canadian will be playing in Mallorca, Spain which is a WTA International grass court event. Despite having a lower status, this event has gathered few big names of the WTA Tour including Victoria Azarenka who is resuming her professional career after giving birth to a child las year.

Fame and decay in the same pocket for Bouchard

At 23 years of age, Bouchard still has plenty of time ahead to bounce back where she was standing a few years ago. But, if the current trend will persist, she will end up with no further impact on women's tennis. Back in 2014, as a newcomer, she stunned the audience as well as the competition out there in the field.

That 2014 season started with Bouchard reaching the semis at the Australian Open, then it was the French Open' semis and Wimbledon runner-up to Petra Kvitova.

The downward trend began with 2014 US Open where she went on losing in the fourth round. Reaching the 5th place in October 2014 was a bonus of a solid season.

But in tennis, a fast ascendance brings a huge amount of pressure as those points must be defended next season. And Bouchard failed to do so as her ranking plunged dramatically throughout the season of 2015.

Mallorca could be a fertile ground

Being held on a grass court, this event suits well to Eugenie Bouchard.

The owner of a powerful game, she could use in her favor the leverage of a faster surface. The draw is already out and Bouchard is scheduled to open her grass court campaign against Francesca Schiavone of Italy. A former French Open champion, the Italian is near the twilight of her career and might be an easy each for Bouchard as grass court is not among her favorite surfaces.

Bouchard provided some encouraging signs several weeks ago in Madrid when she battled past Maria Sharapova and Angelique Kerber. An unfortunate injury prevented her from continuing those results throughout the remaining clay court season.
