TORONTO – Eugenie Bouchard was asked three questions about tennis and then asked to twirl and show off her outfit after winning a match at the Australian Open Wednesday.

“Last night you tweeted that you loved Serena’s outfit, obviously the flora is working for you girls at the moment. She was kind enough to give us a twirl, can you give us a twirl and tell us about your outfit?” the commentator asked Bouchard.
