Bouchard follows through on Super Bowl bet, goes on date with Patriots fan

    Eugenie Bouchard is not one to renege on a bet.
    Bouchard, from Westmount, Que., went on a date with a New England Patriots fan on Wednesday night after the two agreed to a bet over Twitter during Super Bowl 51.
    Bouchard had tweeted that she ``knew Atlanta would win'' with the Falcons holding a big lead over the Patriots during the NFL's championship game. The 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.''
    After New England came back to win 34-28 in overtime she tweeted: ``Lesson learned. Never bet against Tom Brady.''
    On Wednesday, Bouchard followed through on the bet and tweeted a photo of the two of them in the backseat of a car with the caption ``Just met my 'Super Bowl Twitter Date' John. On our way to the @BrooklynNets game!''
    Bouchard is ranked 42nd in the world. Earlier on Wednesday she announced that she would be included in Sports Illustrated's annual swimsuit edition.
