Teenaged Eugenie Bouchard dreams of dating 'fellow Canadian' Justin Bieber


Teenaged Canadian tennis player Eugenie Bouchard has revealed that her dream date would be fellow Canadian and teen pop sensation Justin Bieber.

Bouchard scored a shock victory over 14th seed Ana Ivanovic to reach her maiden Grand Slam semi-final in the Australian Open and will meet Chinese star Li Na, who brushed aside Italy's Flavia Pennetta 6-2 6-2.

According to CNN, the world No.31 revealed that her ideal date is Bieber, who has a dedicated army of fans known as 'Beliebers' and over 48 million followers on Twitter.

The 19-year-old Bouchard also said that even though Bieber is doing some 'crazy teenage things', she thinks that he is 'cool' as she likes his songs and believes that he is very talented.

Bouchard, making her debut in the Australian Open main draw, is the first Canadian since Carling Bassett-Seguso at the 1984 US Open to reach the last four of a Grand Slam, the report added.
