19-Year-Old Canadian Eugenie Bouchard Reaches Aussie Open Semis, Would Like to Date Justin Bieber (Video)
Canada’s Eugenie Bouchard is one of the biggest up-and-coming stars in women’s tennis right now. Her amazing run started with a victory in the Wimbledon Juniors draw in 2012. Then it continued with a strong 2013 that saw her reach the third round at Wimbledon and receive the “WTA Newcomer of the Year” award. And now she’s become one of the breakout starts of the 2014 Australian Open, endearing herself to the fans and making her first ever Grand Slam semifinal.
Oh, and it just so happens that Eugenie, now 19, is…you know…really hot. So obviously, after Bouchard knocked off Ana Ivanovic in the quarterfinals yesterday, the person doing the post-match interview had to ask her, “if you could date anyone in the world, who would it be?”
Her response? Yeah, it drew boos. Playful boos, but boos nonetheless. Take a look:
Oooooo, yeah, I’m sorry, but no. The correct answer was Ryan Gossling. Ryan Gossling is the guy we were looking for. Sorry about that, Genie. Thanks for playing!
(Don’t worry, Genie, everyone still loves you even if your celebrity crush is a giant tool.)
