CANADIAN TENNIS PLAYER Genie Bouchard has paid off her lost Super Bowl bet by joining blind date John Goehrke at a Brooklyn Nets NBA home game against Milwaukee.
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!”
