Genie Bouchard says she'll go on a second date with Twitter fan

Tennis star Eugenie Bouchard has honored a Twitter bet she made with a student over the Super Bowl and taken him on a date.

With the Falcons winning by 25 points, Bouchard responded to the tweet, "sure".

With a new spread in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and a hot date with a Twitter fan, life seems to be looking up for Genie Bouchard.

Genie Bouchard wasn't on her own in thinking Super Bowl LI was as good as settled at half-time.

Wonder who paid for the tickets? Goehrke then made his pitch for a date if the Patriots somehow fought back to win.

Bouchard throws a shirt into the stands during her date at the Nets-Bucks game. Hours later, when the Patriots had won, she said she would honor the bet and go on the date. "On our way to the @BrooklynNets game!" she wrote.

"He's normal", she added about Goehrke, relieved the internet date didn't turn out badly. Luckily, though, when a TMZreported ambushed them after the game to ask how the date was going, Bouchard said, "Awesome, he's normal".

The two went out Wednesday to watch the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Brooklyn Nets 129-125. I don't even know what he looks like.

Earlier, Bouchard had posted a video to Instagram where John described the night as "the best date ever" while the Canadian gave the thumbs up.

"I was pretty nervous leading up to the actual meeting", Goehrke told ESPNw.

"That idea kind of just popped in my head, so I went through with it".
