Tennis star Bouchard honours Super Bowl blind date bet

99

Canadian tennis star Eugenie Bouchard has honoured her promise to join a 20-year-old student for a date, after he won their Twitter wager over the US Super Bowl, BBC reports.

While the Atlanta Falcons were 21-0 ahead, Ms Bouchard predicted their victory online.

But when New England Patriots fan John Goehrke bet her a date that his team would triumph, she gamely accepted.

The Patriots duly mounted a nail-biting comeback in the game's dying minutes.

Ms Bouchard, 22, clearly a woman of her word, tweeted a picture of herself and Mr Goehrke en route to a New York basketball game.

"Just met my 'Super Bowl Twitter Date' John. On our way to the @BrooklynNets game!" she wrote.
