‘Y’all are crazy’: Tennis star Genie Bouchard in shock as fan bids $85,000 for dinner date

Genie Bouchard has netted a tidy sum for charity after a fan agreed to pay a whopping $85,000 for the privilege of a match experience and dinner date with the Canadian tennis star-turned-Instagram influencer.

Bouchard, 26, was auctioning off the package as part of the ‘All In Challenge’ in conjunction with US charity 15 Seconds of Fame.

According to the bidding site, the “lucky winner and a guest will go to any tennis tournament of their choice,” where they will get to sit in the player’s box and later enjoy a cosy meal with Bouchard herself.

The Canadian former world number five will cover the airfare and will also shower the winning fan with an assortment of mementos such as signed kit.

The bidding began at $2,500 but closed at a whopping $85,000 when the auction ended on Friday night – meaning one fan really is desperate to get up close and personal with the blonde racket star.
