Bouchard was asked last year during the Australian Open, if she could date any celebrity in the world, who would it be. Bouchard said without thinking taking the forehand quickly, “Justin Bieber.”
Well, we hear that the champagne is on ice and Bouchard’s dream of dating the pop star could still take a while. But meeting him? That’s already been fulfilled, actually. Ah, baby steps to that dating, we think.
They played a mixed doubles match for Desert Smash celebrity event at LaQuinta Resort & Club, which is a charity event in California.
Post that event, Bouchard posted an Instagram photo of herself on court with Bieber and comedians Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart and captioned it: “So much fun playing tennis with @justinbieber Will Ferrel & @kevinhart4real at @desertsmash! And for Cancer for College, what a great cause.”
Justin’s not a brat
When asked what her dating aspirant was like, Bouchard simply said, “Coooool. Not a spoilt brat.”
She also revealed that she had earlier thought she would go and teach him a few tennis tricks but when she saw how well he hit the forehand, she realised that Beiber did not need any tennis lessons from the Eugenie Bouchard school of coaching.
“When we played the match, it was like Canada vs USA,” she was quoted by Yahoo! Sports Canada.
While she was happy to talk about Beiber, she was less forthcoming about her injury and recent early exits from tournaments saying she would rather not go into that.
Well, right now though it is not about on court antics but off-court matters that Bouchard prefers to talk about. Game, set and date Eugenie-Justin?
