Bouchard pays off Super Bowl bet

GENIE Bouchard kept her word after the Atlanta Falcons lost the lead.

The Canadian tennis star and now swimsuit model sat courtside at a Brooklyn Nets game on Wednesday night with a fan who asked her for a date on Twitter if the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl.

Bouchard tweeted during the Super Bowl that she knew the Falcons would win. A fan named John Goehrke responded to her by writing “if patriots win we go on a date?” and she responded “Sure.”

The Falcons then blew a 25-point lead as the Patriots rallied to win in overtime and Bouchard agreed to keep her word.

In New York for ceremonies tied to the “Sports Illustrated” swimsuit issue, in which she appears, the Montreal-born blonde met Goehrke earlier on Wednesday and they sat together for the NBA game against the Milwaukee Bucks, even coming on the court and throwing some souvenir balls into the stands.

The Bucks won 129-125.
