Genie Bouchard's Dream Date Is Justin Bieber But The Australian Open Crowd Didn't Approve (VIDEO)

Genie Bouchard is both a semifinalist at the Australian Open and a Belieber. The crowd in Melbourne has rightfully lavished her in praise for first accomplishment but didn't seem particularly happy upon learning the second fact.

Following her quarterfinal win over Ana Ivanovic, the 19-year-old Canadian tennis player was asked -- apropos of nothing -- about her dream date. Bouchard named a fellow Canadian, pop star Justin Bieber. After an initial laugh at Bouchard's nervous reply, the crowd responded with some light-hearted booing.
