Genie Bouchard has been one of the biggest stories at this year’s Australian Open. The 19-year-old women’s tennis star beat Ana Ivanovic in three sets on Tuesday to advance to the semifinals of the tournament. After the match, she fielded a question from a reporter about which celebrity she’d like to date. Bouchard confessed that it was Justin Bieber.
The crowd gave a collective grumble and moan that Bouchard is interesting in going on a date with this guy, but she should be glad she said something. According to TMZ, Bieber has watched the video and is flattered. He supposedly told his friends that he wants to get in touch with Genie as soon as possible.
Of course, Bieber could simply be being a nice guy. Although given some of the ridiculous trouble he has gotten into lately, we’re pretty confident saying the Biebs spends most of his time looking out for himself. Maybe he really does want to date Genie. We still think she can do better.
