Tennis star Eugenie Bouchard loses Super Bowl bet to go on date with a Patriots fan

While the New England Patriots completed a historic comeback in the Super Bowl on Sunday night, they also helped a tennis fan out.

She looks shell-shocked in a photo she tweeted Monday. Feeling pretty good about the Falcons' chances, she accepted.

Fast-forward a couple of hours later and the Patriots pulled of the miracle to beat the Falcons 34-28 in overtime. He asked her if she would go on a date with him if New England somehow won and she replied with "sure" not knowing how quickly the tides would change. Go to school in Missouri.

Bouchard has endured two hard seasons on and off the court since reaching the 2014 Wimbledon final, but looked to be getting back to her best with some good performances at Melbourne.

Later, Bouchard added, "Lesson learned".

One opportunistic Twitter user definitely owes Tom Brady a pint.
