Tennis star Genie Bouchard owes a date to a stranger thanks to the Patriots

Eric Bolte USA TODAY Sports

The world No. 45 confidently predicted Atlanta Falcons would win the American Football showpiece event, with the side looking for their first championship title in the franchise's history.

With the Falcons seemingly holding an insurmountable lead on the Patriots during the Super Bowl, Canadian tennis pro Genie Bouchard was feeling confident on her Twitter account.

New England wound up pulling off the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history, stunning Atlanta with a 34-28 victory in overtime. He asked Bouchard if she would go on a date with him if the Patriots came back to win the game.

Bouchard had been celebrating as the Atlanta Falcons took what looked to be an unassailable 21-0 lead late in the second quarter of the Super Bowl. During the rally, a fan asked if she was getting nervous. Hope your date goes a little bit better than most Internet dates do!

Commendably, Eugenie seemed set on keeping her word and paying her debt, tweeting soon after the final whistle: "So. where do you live?" at her potential new partner.


"Lol it made a Twitter moment", she tweeted Monday.

"Chicago. Go to school in Missouri", the fan replied.

"I saw the tweet and I'm like, I wasn't assuming the game was over because I knew how good the Patriots were and how good Tom Brady was, but I was like, I don't think this is over", Goehrke, a Rams fan who lives in the Chicago area, told the Tribune.

"Lesson learned", Bouchard followed with later.
