Canadian tennis star Eugenie Bouchard got into several heated exchanges with her coach during practice Wednesday, one day before arguably the biggest match of her career.

“I’m telling you my opinion. So basically I'm not allowed to tell you my opinion?” the 20-year-old from Westmount, Que., asked.

“No, not like that,” coach Nick Saviano replied.

The session ended with Bouchard hitting a ball into a nearby food court and walking off the court.

Saviano has been Bouchard’s coach since she was 12 years old.

Bouchard is set to face Maria Sharapova in the French Open semifinals Thursday. It’s the Canadian’s second Grand Slam semifinal matchup of her career.

The two stars have met twice before, with Sharapova winning both times.
