Bouchard to return

SYDNEY: Glamour girl Eugenie Bouchard will attempt to get her career back on track at the Hobart International, she said on Wednesday, after a head injury scuppered the end of her 2015 season.

The 21-year-old, named one of the most marketable athletes in the world this year, showed her huge potential by making her first Grand Slam semi-final at the Australian Open in 2014.

She followed up that year by reaching the French Open semi-final and Wimbledon final, reaching a career-high world ranking of five in October 2014.

But she suffered a big setback at the US Open in September when she sustained a head injury after slipping in the locker room.
