Tennis Ace Genie Bouchard Keeps Super Bowl Promise – Goes on Date With Fan

Eugenie Bouchard is clearly a woman of her word, after the tennis star kept her promise and went on a date with a fan after betting on the outcome of Super Bowl LI.

Bouchard, who is currently ranked no. 47 in the world, made a bet with Twitter user @punslayintwoods after the Atlanta Falcons held a 21-3 half-time lead against the New England Patriots:

Step up, Tom Brady.

Yes, despite the odds being stacked against them, the Patriots managed to pull-off the most amazing comeback in Super Bowl history to eventually win the game 34-28.

And despite her prediction going down the drain, Bouchard immediately Tweeted the fan back after Brady got his hands on a a fifth Super Bowl championship:

And it wasn’t all talk either.

The pair did go on a date, as they were pictured in New York City last night taking in a Brooklyn Nets game.

Bouchard was asked about the Twitter bet during a recent interview with Sports Illustrated.

“After all the media attention it got, it was something I could, first of all, not back out of. There was no chance,” she said on Sports Illustrated‘s Extra Mustard.

“I was worried, however, when I looked at his Twitter profile as soon as I lost the bet and his profile picture was a picture of Tiger Woods,” she added.

“I was like, ‘It’s one of those Twitter fans. I don’t even know what he looks like. What is going to happen?’ But it turns out he seems to be a very nice boy.”

Unfortunately, we doubt a second date is on the cards…
