Tennis star Bouchard follows through with Twitter date after lost Super Bowl bet

She sat courtside at the Nets game with the lucky fan last night.

Goehrke, a 20-year-old University of Missouri student and New England Patriots supporter, won his dream date with Bouchard, thanks to the Patriots’ record-setting rally to defeat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51 earlier this month.

The Montreal-born 22-year-old predicted an Atlanta triumph on Twitter with the Falcons ahead 21-0 and her suitor pitched a date if the Patriots rallied to win.

Bouchard agreed, only to then see Tom Brady lead the Patriots to a 34-28 comeback triumph.

Bouchard, ranked 44th in the WTA rankings after a third-round run at the Australian Open, tweeted a photo with her date saying, “Just met my ‘Super Bowl Twitter Date’ John. On our way to the @BrooklynNets game!”

The two sat courtside and were interviewed by Yes Network:
