Eugenie Bouchard is a woman of her word — and John Goehrke remains one of the luckiest men to ever walk the face of the earth.
We’ve come to those conclusions based on the tennis superstar’s latest social media post in which she snapped a photo of the two relaxing on a couch together. #Couplegoals.

It may have taken all the way until December but Goehrke has finally worked his way back into the most important part of many athletes’ lives these days — their social channels.

“He’s a normal fan,” Bouchard said. “I didn’t (expect him to be normal). It’s complete luck, I’m so lucky.
