Take it from Eu­ge­nie: ‘Never bet against Tom Brady’

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

For­get the Lom­bardi Tro­phy. The New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots’ shock­ing come­back win over the At­lanta Fal­cons in Su­per Bowl 51 earned one fan a date with Cana­dian ten­nis star Eu­ge­nie Bouchard.

With the Fal­cons hold­ing a big lead over the Pa­tri­ots Sun­day, Bouchard tweeted that she “knew At­lanta would win.”

A fan then asked her to go on a date if the Pa­tri­ots some­how ended up win­ning and in what must have seemed like a low-risk re­ply, Bouchard said, “sure.”

Her fi­nal tweet of the night was one of res­ig­na­tion, “Les­son learned. Never bet against Tom Brady.”

The fan who asked for a date hasn’t said if Bouchard has got­ten in touch to schedule their out­ing.

Bouchard, from West­mount, Que., is ranked 45th in the world.


Eu­ge­nie Bouchard may have bet her­self into a date with a stranger over the out­come of the Su­per Bowl.
