Bouchard 'vindicated' after USTA settlement

Eugenie Bouchard leaves Brooklyn Federal court during the case

A case was launched in a NY court after Bouchard said she fell due to a "slippery, foreign and unsafe substance" on the tiled floor of a physiotherapy room.

Bouchard told the court she could feel the chemical cleaning agents burning her skin "all over me".

Canadian tennis player and former world number 5, Eugenie Bouchard has reached a settlement in her lawsuit against the U.S. Tennis Association (USTA). Bouchard had sued USA tennis's governing body after she slipped and fell in a training room.

Tennis players aren't supposed to get concussions, a lawyer for Canadian pro Eugenie Bouchard told jurors Friday in opening statements for the athlete's damages trial against the managers of the US Open.

Vettel and Ferrari 'fired up' for 2018 after unveiling SF71H
Ferrari have not won the constructors title since 2008 with Raikkonen last winning the drivers title for Ferrari in 2007. Ferrari were second in the 2017 championship and this season will bid to challenge four-time holders Mercedes .

She testified: "I screamed, 'Oh my God, it burns!'" "My client Genie and I are very pleased with the settlement", Bouchard's lawyer, Benedict Morelli, said in an email to Reuters. She did not play a complete a match for the rest of the 2015 season. Now ranked 116th in the world, she has not replicated her early success, which included reaching the Wimbledon final in 2014.

Bouchard and the USTA are yet to comment on the case. She said she was forced to withdraw from the U.S. Open, where she was still in contention in singles and doubles, and from subsequent tournaments in China and Japan.

The USTA countered that it was Bouchard's responsibility to be aware that the locker room was being cleaned at 11 p.m. when her fall occurred.

According to the New York Times, the damages phase of the trial takes place on Friday at the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
