controversial question she fielded at last mont Antworten

MONTREAL -- Canadian tennis star Eugenie Bouchard says she had no problem with a controversial question she fielded at last months Australian Open, moments after the biggest win of her career. The 19-year-old from Westmount, Que., had just become the first Canadian to reach a Grand Slam semifinal in 30 years when she was asked by an on-court female interviewer who she would like to date, if she could choose anyone in the world. Many observers quickly deemed the question sexist, with some asking whether a similar query would ever be put to a male athlete. The exchange attracted even more attention because Bouchard, apparently caught off guard by the question, blurted out an unexpected response on live TV: "Um, Justin Bieber?" Her reference to the Canadian pop star seemed to be tongue-in-cheek. Bouchard, who will represent Canada at this weekends Federation Cup in Montreal, said Wednesday she thought the question was all in good fun and she was happy to play along. "I think it was a fine question, you know, I think its entertainment for the fans," Bouchard said when asked at a Fed Cup news conference if she thought the Australian Open question was sexist. "It was actually a fan question, so at the end of the day, its for the fans and, if thats what theyre curious about, well thats fine by me." The No. 19-ranked Bouchard said she might like to know more herself about who, for example, a certain soccer player would want to date. Sometimes, she added, it can be fun to handle questions about something other than tennis because the answers might interest a broader audience. When asked if she thought a male athlete might receive a similar question, Bouchard didnt directly respond, saying the fact shes a younger player might explain why she got such a query. "You know, they wouldnt ask Roger Federer that question -- obviously, hes married and has kids," she said, referring to the 32-year-old Swiss tennis legend. "But I dont know, maybe, I think they should (ask) other single tennis players. Why not?" The question came after Bouchard, who was the 30th seed at the Australian Open, completed a stunning 5-7, 7-5, 6-2 upset of former world No. 1 Ana Ivanovic. The victory made her the first Canadian to reach the semis at a Grand Slam since Carling Bassett-Seguso at the 1984 U.S. Open. Bouchards impressive run in Melbourne came to an end a couple of days later when she lost 6-2, 6-4 to fourth-seeded Li Na of China in the semifinal. But her accomplishments caught the attention of tennis fans in Canada and abroad, including a group of a dozen or so raucous Aussies who became her unofficial cheering section at every match. The group, which dubbed itself the "Genie Army," wore T-shirts that spelled her name, belted out cheers composed just for her and tossed stuffed animals to her on the court following each of her appearances. Bouchard was asked Wednesday about how much things have changed since her emergence at the Australian Open, where some commentators called her next big thing in womens tennis and a potential future Grand Slam tournament champion. "For sure theres been more attention and I think it comes with the job," said Bouchard, who added that more people now recognize her on the street. "It just shows, you know, if you have success on court, youll get attention off the court. But my first priority is tennis and I focus on that and make sure I get everything I need to do done. "And then if theres other attention off the court, well, thats a good thing." Maurice Richard Jersey .

Pierre Turgeon Jersey . - Tom Brady was upset that his New England Patriots hardly looked like a division champion in the first half.MONTREAL -- Jack McInerneys first goal in an Impact uniform was the lone bright spot in an otherwise bland showing by Montreal on Saturday. McInerney, acquired by the Impact last week, scored in his debut -- a 1-1 draw to the Chicago Fire at Montreals Olympic Stadium. Both teams are still winless six games into the MLS season. Montreal (0-3-3) was slow and uninspired for long stretches. The Impact entered the game with an MLS-high 91 shot attempts, including 34 on target. But they were kept relatively quiet by Chicago (0-1-5), hitting the target only twice -- both in the first half. One of those was McInerneys first goal as an Impact, scored in the 42nd minute to give Montreal the 1-0 lead. "Other than the goal, I didnt do well at all," said the 21-year-old McInerney, unhappy with his performance despite getting off the mark with his new club. "I didnt find the ball much out there. But its only the first game. Ive only been here a week." After two good chances by the Fires Jeff Larentowicz, who skied a shot from just outside the six-yard box in the 35th minute, and Patrick Nyarko, whose 37th minute blast was blocked by defender Eric Miller, the Impact took a surprise lead when Marco Di Vaio received a pass and found an onrushing McInerney, flicking the ball onto his path with his head. The newest Impact player walked in all alone, slowed down on the breakaway, and rifled his shot past Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson. McInerney, who was drafted fifth overall by Philadelphia in 2010, was acquired last week from the Union in exchange for Andrew Wenger. McInerney scored 12 goals in 31 MLS appearances last season for the Union, including twice against the Fire. Impact coach Frank Klopas, playing against his former team for the first time since being let go in October 2013, says he is confident he can build on the chemistry between Di Vaio and McInerney, his two main strikers. "There were moments when they were good," said Klopas, who played for the Fire in the late 90s and coached the squad for 81 games over three seasons between 2011 and 2013. "For sure, its going to get better as time goes on," he added. "We talked about moving the ball quickly, switching the ppoint of attack, looking to combine with both strikers in order to break through.dddddddddddd" The Impact moved the ball quickly at the end of the first half to break the deadlock, but they did little of it in the second half. Instead, they took three shots, all of them off target, werent awarded any corner kicks, and accumulated 10 fouls. The Chicago Fire, on the other hand, spent a lot of time in Montreals half, dictating the run of play. They directed 17 shots at the net over the course of the game, controlled possession for most of it, and were awarded 10 corners. And all the Chicago corners finally made the Impact pay in the 54th minute. Off a corner, midfielder Larentowiczs header rang off the crossbar before falling to Mike Magee, who squared it across to Quincy Amarikwa in the 18-yard box for his third goal of the season. "Its not obvious, its not easy," said midfielder Patrice Bernier. "Its tough, actually. Youre at home, you take the lead, you need to get points from that." Despite the single point for the draw, the Impact are still stuck in the Eastern Conference basement with three points from six games. Theyve now drawn three straight after opening their season with three losses. "Lets focus on the positive: we havent been losing those games," said Bernier, who came on as a substitute at halftime. "Its a long season. I prefer starting a season slowly and ending it with a bang rather than starting strong and disappearing by the end of it. "Teams are better than us, and we deserve the results were getting. We need to get out of this rut. Other teams wont help us out of this. Its up to us." The Impact look to turn the tide against conference-rivals Sporting Kansas City in their next game, on April 19. Notes: Montreal was without midfielder Hernan Bernardello, who left last weeks game against the New York Red Bulls after landing awkwardly on his right ankle. ...
