The tennis player 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 later posted a video of her and her date sitting courtside as the Nets hosted the Milwaukee Bucks.

The tennis player is ranked 42nd in the world. Earlier on Wednesday she announced that she would be included in Sports Illustrated’s annual swimsuit edition.
