Genie Bouchard‘s dreams could be coming true in more ways than one.
The 19-year-old Canadian is garnering some attention for her impressive play at the Australian Open, but it’s her taste in men that’s stealing the spotlight. After defeating Ana Ivanovic on Tuesday to advance to the semifinals, Bouchard was asked to reveal who her celebrity crush was.
To the chagrin of most, Bouchard admitted it was Justin Bieber, and now the Biebs is turning on the Twitter charm. The sparks were flying Wednesday as Bieber tweeted Bouchard before her semifinal match against Li Na.
Check out the Canadian love connection below.

Update: Bieber’s message didn’t inspire Bouchard to victory. She lost 6-4, 6-2.
