Go Behind The Scenes With Genie Bouchard As She Strips Down For The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

After a disappointing third-round loss at the Australian Open, Canadian Genie Bouchard is switching gears this month and taking centre court in the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

“The first moment I heard I could be in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition, I was very excited but at the same time nervous. My first thought was, Oh my god, how am I gonna do it?” she says in a behind-the-scenes video from the tropical photo shoot.

The exclusive footage shows a relaxed Bouchard smiling on the beach as she strikes some sultry poses in nothing but an orange swimsuit bottom.

In a second shot, the Montreal-born beauty is captured lying on a pristine beach rocking a plunging neon green one-piece swimsuit. Not wanting to be unprepared, the Canadian tennis player trained for the shot by practising her poses at home in bed. “I did… [pose beforehand] on my bed…to get into the mentality of being sexy on the beach.”

Bouchard celebrated the cover on Twitter Wednesday morning by sharing a selfie of herself, alongside her plans for the day, which happened to include a date with a lucky fan won a Super Bowl bet with the tennis star.
