Bouchard wants ‘millions and millions’ after lawsuit win

CANADIAN tennis star Eugenie Bouchard has won her case against the United States Tennis Association.

The jury found the USTA, which manages the Queens-based US Open, primarily negligent in a slip-and-fall accident at the 2015 Open that Bouchard says damaged her career.

Bouchard, 23, who was once ranked No.5 in the world, suffered a concussion after entering a dimly-lit training room, slipping backwards on a floor that was slick with a cleaning chemical, and hitting her head, according to her lawsuit.
