Canadian Eugenie Bouchard says if she was tennis commissioner, she'd let fans bring out the noise at matches.

“I would say letting fans in and out [of matches] whenever they want and letting them be loud,” the 19-year-old Bouchard told SI’s Beyond the Baseline. "Fans in other sports can be more crazy. I know [tennis] fans have trouble with the fact that they can only go in after two games and have to be very quiet. It would be more fun for the fans if it was a little more crazy."

Bouchard added that she doesn't feel like a kid anymore.

“I don’t feel young. I turned 19 this year and I freaked out [laughs]," she said. "I was like, 'Nineteen is so close to 20, 20 is so close to 21. And once you’re 21, what else is there to look forward to?' ”
