    After beating former world No. 1 Ana Ivanovic to reach the semifinals of the Australian Open, rising tennis star Eugenie Bouchard is one step closer to making her dreams come true.
    No, not dreams of a first grand slam title, but a date with fellow Canadian and teenage heartthrob Justin Bieber.
    With her mind still racing after coming from one-set down to beat 14th seed Ivanovic 5-7 7-5 6-2 and reach the last four of a major for the first time, Bouchard was asked during her on-court interview who her ideal date would be.
    The world No. 31 plumped for Bieber, who has a dedicated army of fans -- known as "Beliebers" -- and over 48 million followers on Twitter.
    "I like him, I like his songs, I think he has a lot of talent," 19-year-old Bouchard told CNN. "For sure he's doing some crazy teenage things, but I think he's really cool."
