WATCH: Bouchard falls to Sara Sorribes Tormo in Guadalajara final.


In March things were starting to improve for Eugenie Bouchard. She claimed four consecutive matches to reach her first final since last September at Istanbul's 250 event and seemed to be enjoying the game in Guadalajara. However, the following week she fell in Monterrey's first round and the Canadian never returned to the match court since.

In her latest Instagram post she shared a disappointing update on a shouler injury that occurred in her Guadalajara opener in March. Despite the injury, she still managed to reach the finals before losing to Sara Sorribes Tormo.

Bouchard has since been trying every treatment and rehab program possible to fix her torn subscapularis muscle before deciding to pull the trigger and have arthroscopic surgery.

"I have a tough road of rehab ahead of me, but my spirits are high and I will work hard to get back to the job that I love," Bouchard wrote on Instagram.

Although the recovery time and process is slightly daunting, the 2014 Wimbledon finalist is in high spirits and remains hopeful for the future. The 27-year-old can be seen wearing a sling to help her shoulder heal and even took her competitive fire to the beer pong table, using her left arm to score.

Bouchard will presumably be out of action for at least the next few months if not the rest of the season.
