At the 2013 Australian Open a reporter asked then 19-year-old tennis star Eugenie Bouchard who her celebrity crush is, and she responded by sheepishly naming pop star and fellow Canadian Justin Bieber.
Now Bouchard has gotten to spend a little more time with the heartthrob thanks to Will Ferrell's 11th annual Desert Smash event, where the world No. 7 was paired with Bieber for a doubles match.
The event also featured top tennis players like the Fernando Verdasco, Daniella Hantuchova John Isner, Bryan Brothers and Sam Querry, and finished off with a concert featuring Bieber.
The event raises money for Ferrell's charity Cancer for College, which provides scholarships for cancer survivors.
