Eugenie Bouchard has paid out on her end of her Super Bowl bet.
Back on the night of February 5, the Canadian tennis star was confident enough of Atlanta Falcons win that she agreed to date a fan if the result went the other way.
Of course, the New England Patriots’ sporting miracle followed. And on Wednesday night, Bouchard followed up the bet after posing for Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit issue.

‘Busy day with @si_swimsuit and then tonight… I’m going on a date,’ the world’s No 44-ranked player posted on Twitter, alongside a winking emoji.
And after another fan retweeted the image of Bouchard in a car with a message suggesting it was ‘date night’ for the Patriots-backing punter John Goehrke, he ‘liked’ the tweet.
Later on in the evening, she added another photo to her Twitter account, captioning it: ‘Just met my ‘Super Bowl Twitter Date’ John. On our way to the @BrooklynNets game! @punslayintwoods’.

The pair headed to a basketball game between the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night, with courtside seats.
While the pair looked a little awkward together in some photographs they were able to give a big smile when they realised their image was being shown on the big screen.
And Bouchard got into the swing of things during the game by throwing a shirt out into the crowd.
And afterwards Goehrke said in the video that Bouchard posted that it been the ‘best date ever’.

Goehrke, who goes by the handle saw the opportunity back on the night of the Super Bowl as Bouchard confidently stated her backing for Falcons.
At that point, the Patriots were 25 points behind before their unlikely comeback sealed the date set for this week.
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.

Twenty-year-old student Goehrke told the Kansas City Star last week: ‘I just thought to myself, it’s not over.
‘That idea kind of just popped in my head, so I went through with it.
‘I thought maybe there was a chance she would respond, but I thought there was no chance she’d actually agree to it.’
Lucky fan Goehrke liked a tweet suggesting that the date was imminent earlier in the day
