Eugenie Bouchard and her Twitter bet date have been at it again this week

During this year’s Super Bowl, Bouchard predicted the Falcons would get the better of the Patriots.

Goehrke boldy replied: “If Patriots win, we go on a date?”

Incredibly, Bouchard replied: “Sure.”

During the game, Goehrke appeared to be out of luck, as the Falcons opened up a seemingly unassailable 25 points lead.

Tennis star Eugenie Bouchard spends more time with Twitter date ... - Wide World of Sports

4338313 tennis-star-eugenie-bouchard-spends-more-time-with-twitter-date-wide-world-of-sports

Eugenie Bouchard has reignited her romance with John Goehrke, the man who won a date with the tennis star after making a successful Twitter bet on the Super Bowl.

Bouchard tweeted a photo on Thursday showing herself and the 20-year-old marketing student hanging out 10 months after they first 'broke the internet' following Super Bowl LI. 

Using the account '@punslayintwoods', Goehrke tweeted Bouchard during the game after she picked Atlanta to go on and win the NFL decider before it had ended. He bet her that if New England went on to win the Super Bowl, she would have to go on a date with him, to which she quote tweeted him, "sure". 

With New England down 28-3, Bouchard wasn't the only person who thought it was game over, but somehow the Patriots mounted a miraculous comeback, the greatest in Super Bowl history, and defeated the Falcons in overtime for the franchise's fifth...

Tennis: Billie Jean King's racquet from 'Battle of the Sexes' match ... - Wide World of Sports

4338317 tennis-billie-jean-king-s-racquet-from-battle-of-the-sexes-match-wide-world-of-sports

The tennis racquet famously used by Billie Jean King in the 'Battle of the Sexes' match against Bobby Riggs has been sold for a record amount at auction.

Selling for an astounding $US125,000 ($A164,646) in New York by Bonhams auction house, the Wilson racquet is believed to be the most expensive piece of women's sporting memorabilia ever sold. Sellers said 10 percent of the funds will be donated to the Women's Sport Foundation, an organisation founded by King 'to advance the lives of girls and women through sports and physical activity'.

During the height of the women's liberation movement, the 1973 match at Houston's Astrodome saw King face off with provocative former world number one and hustler Riggs for $US100,000 in a one-off exhibition.

King was out to prove that female athletes deserved equal prizemoney to their male counterparts, who at the time were receiving substantially...

Stosur crushed by qualifier in first round

4338323 stosur-crushed-by-qualifier-in-first-round

SAM Stosur crashed out of the Australian Open at the first hurdle for the fourth time and says she does not want to be remembered for her home grand slam performances.

Czech qualifier Kristyna Pliskova, ranked a lowly 114th, sent Stosur packing in a 6-4, 7-6(6) result that continued the much-scrutinised Queenslander’s disappointing Melbourne Park record.

Stosur, 31, has never made the quarter-finals at her home slam and had already lost in the second round or earlier at seven of her previous 13 trips to the Open.

Tennis: Bernard Tomic to miss Australian Open wildcard playoff - Wide World of Sports

4337459 tennis-bernard-tomic-to-miss-australian-open-wildcard-playoff-wide-world-of-sports

Bernard Tomic must run the gauntlet of qualifying or miss his first home grand slam in a decade after choosing to skip the the Australian Open wildcard playoff.

Tomic, ranked 142, would have been the top seed at the playoff, which takes place next week at Melbourne Park.

But the 25-year-old's name didn't appear in the 16-man field published on Thursday, against the hopes of Tennis Australia.

The winner of the men's and women's playoff, open to local players, are guaranteed places in the main draw of the Australian Open.

As recently as Wednesday, Davis Cup captain Lleyton Hewitt said it would be the "right move" for Tomic to nominate for the playoff.

His refusal to compete against his peers is almost certain to cost him the chance at a discretionary wildcard, given Hewitt and Tennis Australia chief Craig Tiley both urged him to play next week.

Tennis legend Evonne Goolagong Cawley believes Serena Williams will join her in one of the sport's most exclusive clubs with a momentous Australian Open triumph as a mother.

Goolagong Cawley, fellow Australian all-time great Margaret Court and Belgian Kim Clijsters are the only three mothers in half a century of professional tennis to have won grand slam singles titles.

But Williams is less than seven weeks away from becoming the fourth, according to Goolagong Cawley.

"I think she will," the former world No.1 said.

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal won two Grand Slams apiece in 2017

Roger Federer won two Grand Slams in 2017 tournament and finishes the year as the world No2 in the tennis rankings.

Only Nadal, who won the French Open and the US Open, finished ahead of him after his own remarkable campaign on the tour.

In order to manage his fitness and reduce the possibility of injuries, Federer took the decision to miss the entire clay court season.

His decision to not play in every tournament available to him worked out as he took victory at the Australian Open and Wimbledon.

Roger Federer will finish 2017 as world No2 in the tennis rankings

What he did is very difficult. Playing so less, being able to win almost every time you return to play is a very big risk.

Tennis coach uses Stand Your Ground law to defend hitting 5-year-old - New York Post

4334907 tennis-coach-uses-stand-your-ground-law-to-defend-hitting-5-year-old-new-york-post

A tennis instructor in Florida busted for child abuse after hitting a 5-year-old boy with a racket wants charges against him dismissed under the state’s Stand Your Ground self-defense law.

Osmailer Torres, of Miami, was charged with third-degree child abuse in August 2016 after police said he took the boy’s child-sized racket and struck him with it while at a playground at a church in Miami. Surveillance video obtained by the Miami Herald shows Torres, 30, whacking the boy and then leading him away from other children, leaving him with injuries to his right arm and his eyebrow.

But in a motion seeking statutory immunity from prosecution, an attorney for Torres claims his client was simply protecting his other students at the time.

“Immediately prior to the alleged incident, Mr. Torres had to separate the child from other pupils to avoid further injuries to those other students,”...
