There hasn't been even a whisper of news, health updates, or reassurance for Genie Bouchard's many fans from her representatives since they outlined the sequence of events in the women's locker room at the US Open 10 days ago.

Bouchard suffered a concussion in the accident, after she reportedly slipped and fell on the wet floor in the trainers' room on her way to an ice bath Friday night.

She withdrew from her women's and mixed doubles matches Saturday and, after a dramatic arrival at the US Open site the following day, during which she looked really stricken, Bouchard withdrew from her fourth-round singles match against Roberta Vinci of Italy.

Since then, nothing, beyond one of the ESPN television commentators noting last Friday that she was still in her New York hotel room, not yet healthy enough to travel home. Eh Game can confirm that she is back in Montreal now, though, recuperating.

No updates on Bouchard's various social-media accounts, either - Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

But Bouchard has officially withdrawn from next week's WTA tournament in Tokyo, Japan – one of four events in Asia that are supposed to close out Bouchard's 2015 season.

The 21-year-old is still entered in Premier events in Wuhan and Beijing, China the two subsequent weeks, as well as a smaller event in Hong Kong the week of Oct. 12 that is to be her season finale.

We can only deduce from that that the Canadian star is taking it week to week.
