Eugenie Bouchard was born to Mike and Julie Bouchard in Montreal. She has a fraternal twin sister, Beatrice, who is six minutes older. She also has two younger siblings, sister Charlotte (born 1995) and brother William (born 1999). She and her twin sister are named after Prince Andrew's daughters.
Eugenie started playing tennis at the age of five and she is a member of Tennis Canada's National Training Centre in Montreal. She attended The Study school in Westmount, as well as Westmount High School. At the age of 12 she moved to Florida to be coached by Nick Saviano, where she would also encounter one of her best childhood friends, tennis player Laura Robson. At 15, Bouchard returned to Montreal for training. A proficient student in mathematics and science, she once considered a career as a physician.
Her favourite tennis player is Roger Federer, whom she was able to meet in 2012 at the Wimbledon Ball. She described talking with Federer as a highlight of her life. For the 2013 WTA Tour, Bouchard enlisted Nathalie Tauziat to coach and travel with her part-time. Under Tauziat, Bouchard transformed her defensive, retrieving tactics from junior level into a game of aggression. Tauziat was let go after the season and Saviano committed to a more present role alongside Bouchard, for the 2014 WTA Tour. During the 2013 off-season she appeared on CTV's The Social, as well as CTV Montreal as a guest weather anchor.
In 2005, Bouchard participated at the tournament Open Super 12 in Auray, France. She captured the ITF singles and doubles titles in Costa Rica and also the All Canadian ITF singles title in Burlington in 2008. In 2009 and at only 15, she won the Canadian under-18 indoor championship in Toronto. At this event, Eugenie overpowered fellow Quebecer Marianne Jodoin to become, at 15 years and a month, one of the youngest winners of the indoor event. Later that year, she won her first professional main draw match at Caserta, Italy, defeating no. 798 Frederica Grazioso. Also in 2009, she won the Pan American Closed ITF Championships.

At Wimbledon, Bouchard lost in the quarterfinals of the singles junior event to no. 3 seed Irina Khromacheva but won the doubles junior event with her partner Grace Min. She also reached a week later her first professional doubles final with Megan Moulton-Levy at the $50,000 ITF tournament in Waterloo, where she lost. At the end of July, she beat the 114th ranked player Alison Riske at the Citi Open in College Park. It was her first WTA main draw win. With that win, she had the chance to meet no. 2 seed Nadia Petrova in the second round, but lost the match.

Bouchard won her first professional doubles title at the $50,000 ITF tournament in Dothan with partner Jessica Pegula. She defeated fellow Canadians Sharon Fichman and Marie-Ève Pelletier in the final. In May, Bouchard won her third professional singles title at the $10,000 ITF Challenger in Båstad with a win over Katharina Lehnert. She won the next week her second straight $10,000 ITF title in Båstad, when she defeated Milana Špremo in the final. Eugenie won the singles title at the junior Wimbledon with a victory over third seed Elina Svitolina. She became the first Canadian ever, junior or pro, to win a Grand Slam in singles.

Bouchard made it to the first WTA quarterfinal of her career, where she was defeated by Sloane Stephens. At the Rogers Cup, she upset former world no. 11 Shahar Pe'er in the first round.

The next week, she won her first 50K at the ITF Challenger in Toronto. She reached the doubles final as well. At her last tournament of the season, Bouchard lost to Jacqueline Cako and Natalie Pluskota in the doubles final of the 75K in Phoenix.
Bouchard is known for hitting the ball extremely early and imposing a severely high tempo on her opponent. At the 2014 Australian Open, Ana Ivanovic stated that Eugenie is "a very aggressive player. It's sometimes very hard to read her game. There are no real patterns, like with other players. She's a great mover."
