Customs official burns Genie Bouchard’s French Open performance
Genie Bouchard has struggled over the last two seasons, dropping to No. 47 in the world rankings from her peak at No. 7 in 2014, when she made the semifinals at the French and Australian Opens and final at Wimbeldon.
Her struggles continued with a loss in straight sets in the second round at the French Open to world No. 8 Timea Bacsinszky, sending her to the Ricoh Open in the Netherlands earlier than she had hoped, a fact that an airport official rubbed in on Friday morning.

Him: Purpose of trip?
Me: Tennis tournament
Him: Oh, shouldn't you still be in Paris then?
Hey customs official, try to be more considerate of tennis stars’ feelings going forward, not everyone can make it to the final weekend at Roland Garros.
