Bouchard: I intend to continue playing tennis for a while.

“Tennis is a sport I much enjoy. While I was away, it was nice to engage in a variety of things off the court. Being on live TV, in all honesty, somewhat satisfied the urge for excitement I was lacking when playing tennis.

It somewhat resembled it. I have to push myself and step outside of my comfort zone. I much prefer to be perspiring on the court. Later on, I can always do it. I still intend to continue playing tennis for a while, “As reported by Sportskeeda, Bouchard.
