One fan, however, felt confident of a Patriots comeback and asked if he could take the Canadian out on a date if New England did manage to win the game.

The Falcons led the Patriots 28-3, and Bouchard tweeted her confidence in the Atlanta side, saying: "I knew Atlanta would win btw". 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.

The world number 45 backed her prediction and agreed, not envisioning what was coming next.

Bouchard was quick to agree and watched on in amazement as Tom Brady and the Patriots pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in Super Bowl history.

Bouchard had been celebrating as the Atlanta Falcons took what looked to be an unassailable 21-0 lead late in the second quarter of the Super Bowl. "We can go on a date wherever you want!"

Commendably, Eugenie seemed set on keeping her word and paying her debt, tweeting soon after the final whistle: "So. where do you live?" at her potential new partner.

Her final tweet of the night was one of resignation, "Lesson learned".

A gleeful Goehrke respondedCanadian tennis star, "Chicago".

But Bouchard is a woman of honor and said she would stand by the bet she made with Goehrke.

Safe to say that Bouchard's Monday will be spent looking for cheap airplane fares to Chicago or Missouri. Expect Bouchard to learn from her mistakes, though.
