Bouchard pays off Super Bowl bet with date at Nets game

The 22-year-old tennis star tweeted out on Wednesday "Just met my "Super Bowl Twitter Date" John". On Wednesday night, she made good on that bet by taking the Patriots fan to a Nets game on Tuesday night at the Barclays Center.

Genie Bouchard's admirer is stooping a bit lower in the game of choice for their fortuitous date.

Eugenie Bouchard kept her word and went out on a blind date with her Twitter follower after she lost a bet during the Super Bowl final.

Say what you want about Bouchard, who is among the models featured in this month's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition, she's a person of integrity. "Judging from the Twitter evidence above, the date appeared to start on the right foot".

So where are the two going for this date? "And I hope it's not too awkward".

Bouchard had called on her lucky fan to "organise a fun date night" after admitting she was in "complete shock" after the turnaround led by Tom Brady. "I was anxious, however. What's going to happen?' But it turns out that he seems to be a very nice boy".

And fair play to Bouchard, she honoured the bet and went on a date in NY.
