It's just a harmless discussion. They seem to know each other well.

Bouchard wrote that Thiem could easily close out the match against Gaston by standing 2 meter closer to the baseline.

Stan answered "that's easy to say" and "(Gaston) doesn't allow the opponent (to stand closer to the baseline)".

He was probably a bit offended, since he lost to Gaston.

And Bouchard shouldn't have posted this, since she doesn't know enough about playing tennis on the court. It was stupid armchair coaching, that Stan could simply have ignored.

For a moment I thought Wawrinka was trying to get into Bouchard panties (the hot tennis player), not that he was wasting this time arguing with this fattie (the other Bouchard)..
He already did for sure. Just like Nadal and Dimi.

Everybody seems to have twitter fingers these days

Agree with Stan. These journalists have no clue about the game, writing for the masses who have even less than a clue about the game and you wonder why nobody knows shit

Bouchard is built like a block, not even close to worthwhile if you want a hot tennis player.

She can still get it and is probably a freak

Just keep it casual

I don't mean to say this is a rude way, but I've met Carole Bouchard and there is no way that she has played a serious game of tennis (or any sport) in the past 10 years.

Of course, she can have her opinion about what Thiem should do, but when a guy that literally just played the opponent gives his input, she should respect that he has to say.

carole bouchard has no authority or athletic prowess whatsoever to be telling the US Open champion how to play tennis.

carole bouchard should stick to baking and eating cakes and cookies, or self educating herself about diet nutrition and calories how, if mismanaged, can make one too overweight to play sport.

Well done by Wawrinka to put this silly fool in her place.

If you go by that logic, it gets to the point where Federer, Nadal and Djokovic are the only ones able to comment about anything tennis related. You don't have to be a champion player to understand/have an opinion about tennis tactics, especially something as obvious as Thiem played too far behind the base line against Gaston. It's hardly rocket science...

Unlike the Rothenberg thread this one doesn't seem necessary. It's just seems like an avenue for MTF to just attack a journalist.

Did Thiem move closer to the baseline in the fifth set? Maybe Bouchard is the next great coach who can help Gauff with her serve and Raonic with his bakchand?!
