Todero has faith in Bouchard ability
Eugenie Bouchard is working hard to climb up the rankings as she seeks a return to the top five, according to coach Jorge Todero.
The Canadian reached a career-high ranking of world number five in October 2014, becoming the first female from her country to hit that mark, but she has since struggled to maintain those standards.
She reached two Grand Slam semi-finals and one final in 2014 but has only once made it beyond round four in the last four years.
Bouchard parted company with coach Michael Joyce earlier this year in an attempt to shake things up and Todero recently linked up with the 25-year-old.
Todero is confident he can help steer Bouchard back up the rankings but admits they need to take it "step by step".
"I met her two weeks ago. She worked very hard. I am very excited to help her," Todero said.
"I asked her what her goal was. She said I want to be back at my level. She can do it. If she keeps working like she does, she can succeed.
"Can Bouchard be a world No. 5 again like she was in October 2014? "Now, yes. But we need time. We have to work step by step to make her passion be there again in matches. I am very pleased with her."
