Tennis star Eugenie Bouchard may have taken the cake for best Halloween costume this year. She and a friend expertly copied the notorious Kim Kardashian mirrored selfie that made such a splash awhile back.
Talk about attention to detail... they used the black bars and everything.
Eugenie has fallen in the tennis rankings over the past 2 years, and is now ranked 47th in the world. While her skills on court haven't held up, her personally certainly shines through. She is a natural born selfie taker, no doubt.
Bouchard burst on the tennis scene in 2014. She reached the semifinals of the Australian Open where she lost to Li Na, then reached the Wimbledon Final, falling short to Petra Kvitova. Genie would finish the season with a ranking of No. 5 in the world and was voted the WTA's Most Improved Player.
2015 would be a less than stellar year for her, as she suffered from multiple injuries and generally inconsistent play. She lost in the first round of a number of tournaments that she had previously dominated, including a stunning loss to a qualifier in the first round of Wimbledon. The disaster of a season culminated with a bizarre concussion, suffered inside of the U.S. Open's player locker room.
2016 would prove slightly more fruitful for Genie, reaching the final of the Shenzhen Open to start the year. Unfortunately, her ranking was dinged due to her poor performances the previous year, making it tough to get any favorable draws in tournaments. Her best Grand Slam result was reaching the third round at Wimbledon.
Fans have expressed discontent with Bouchard's behavior of late, claiming she cares more about popularity and social media than she does about becoming a great tennis player. If anything, these critiques come from a place of love. People see a vast amount of talent within Genie and want to see her live up to it.
But while she trains this off-season for a dominant 2017 campaign, let's allow her to have a little fun playing dress up.
Do you think her outfit was the best athlete Halloween look?
Or... do you like Bouchard's OTHER Halloween costume?
We'll call it a tie.
So, what's next for the Montreal native? She'll be 23 years old in February, meaning she's edging closer to her tennis "prime" years, and she's yet to consistently dominate the sport. Will this change? We certainly hope so.
