It seems like a Twitter exchange between a tennis star and a stranger has turned into an honest-to-goodness friendship.

In February, Canadian tennis player Eugenie Bouchard tweeted during the Super Bowl that she thought the Atlanta Falcons were going to win.

Bouchard has competed at the Australian Open, French Open and at Wimbledon.

One of her followers, 20-year-old university student John Goerhke, spotted an opportunity for a friendly wager.

Bouchard took the bet.

And when the New England Patriots made a comeback to win 34-28 in overtime, Bouchard was initially embarrassed, but decided to honour the bet.

She flew Goehrke out to New York to see a Brooklyn Nets game. He gifted her a pair of Tiffany earrings when he met her before the game.

Now, the pair are hanging out again.

On Thursday, Bouchard tweeted two photos of her relaxing on the couch with Goehrke.

If the pair turn their social media meet-cute into a relationship, Twitter has something to say about it.
