- Professional tennis player Eugenie Bouchard lost a Super Bowl bet against her fan
- She agreed to go out on a date with her lucky fan if the New England Patriots win
- She was sure that the Atlanta Falcons were headed for victory
- Bouchard said she will stay true to her word
“Never bet against Tom Brady.”
This is the lesson learned by Canadian professional tennis player Eugenie Bouchard after she lost a Super Bowl bet.
Like a lot of fans, the 22-year-old player was sure that the Atlanta Falcons were headed for victory on Sunday, February 5; that is why she gamely agreed when a fan asked her if she’d go out on a date if the New England Patriots become the Super Bowl champion.
Bouchard certainly did not expect that the Patriots’ quarterback, Tom Brady, would lead the team in one of the greatest comebacks in Super Bowl history.
The Patriots crushed the Atlanta Falcons’ dream of winning their first ever World Championship title, 34-28 in overtime.
On Monday, February 6, Bouchard said she won’t go back on her word.
The former Wimbledon finalist tweeted: “Lol it made a Twitter moment. And I will do it, I stay true to my word.”
She exchanged a few more tweets with her lucky fan and asked him where he lives.
The guy told her that he lives in Chicago and they can go out on a date wherever she wants.
A lot of people are now curious how Bouchard’s boyfriend, ice hockey player Jordan Caron, will react to his ladylove’s date.
The couple were said to be dating for a few years already and they enjoyed a tropical vacation recently.
According to an article published by The Independent, Bouchard is set to travel to Qatar, Dubai and Budapest for the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) Tour events, before returning to the US in March.
