Matt Harvey likes the pretty ladies. The 25-year-old righthander has been linked to a number of models over the past year or so, and he may have recently set his sights on one of the most popular young tennis players in the world.
According to the New York Post’s Page Six, Harvey’s people tried to set up a meeting between the New York Mets pitcher and 20-year-old Canadian tennis star Genie Bouchard at the US Open earlier this week. Unfortunately, Bouchard was sent home on Monday after she lost to Ekaterina Makarova in the fourth round.
Naturally, Harvey’s representative claims lover boy wasn’t interested in Bouchard.
“We requested tickets for a few games,” the rep told the Post. “Once the requests were in, he was approached about potentially meeting her after her match. That meeting never took place.”
Bouchard needed a medical timeout to treat dizziness and exhaustion in the sweltering heat during her match against Makarova, so she probably wasn’t up to meeting any star athletes after being bounced. Plus, Harvey has nothing on Bouchard’s schoolgirl crush.
Harvey’s people can play it down all they want, but we all know he wanted it. We don’t blame you, Matt. Genie is a cutie. Sorry it hasn’t worked out yet.
