Genie Bouchard best run at a major came in January and also happened to coincide with the time she first gained recognition among sports fans.
The young Canadian star reached the semifinals of the Australian Open earlier this year and also made headlines for saying she’d like to date Justin Bieber when pressed about her celebrity crush. After reaching the finals at Wimbledon Thursday, Bouchard was asked whether there’s been any progress on the Bieber front.
“I hope so,” Bouchard said when asked if her efforts have gotten her noticed by Bieber. “I’m putting in so much hard work. I want to see this hard work rewarded.”
The media continued to press Bouchard on the subject. She said they haven’t been in touch … and she’s also not sure if they should be.
“And he’s kind of been in trouble recently. I’m not associated with that at the moment,” she said with a laugh. “But if he cleans up his image maybe …”
Wait, so you’re saying there’s still a chance for it to happen? Bouchard definitely seems to have her head on straight, so I don’t think Bieber fits into that picture unless she decides to take the Jennifer Capriati career path. In other words, yeah, she’s too good for the Biebs. Then again, don’t all young girls love a bad boy?Google+
