American tennis player Alison Riske wowed fans on Sunday by sharing a video on Twitter of her dancing to a Bollywood song to celebrate her wedding with Stephen Amritraj, son of former Indian tennis player Anand Amritraj.

Riske, who faced off valiantly against Serena Williams during the Wimbledon quarter-final, pranced to the tune of a song from Indian movie Baar Baar Dekho. In a white wedding gown, Riske showed some well-synchronised footwork along with wedding guest. 

“Officially an Amritraj! I’m the luckiest lady because of @stephenamritraj! where all my new Indian followers at??!! here’s a little Bollywood to try to win over your affection!,” Riske tweeted on Sunday along with the dancing video.

The groom Stephen, is a former tennis player like his father Anand Amritraj, who represented India in the Davis Cup in the 1970s. Stephen is also the nephew of yesteryear Indian tennis star Vijay Amritraj.

Riske’s moves impressed some of her guests, a couple of whom joined her in the dance by the end of the 2 minute-long video.

Before reaching the quarterfinal this year, which was her best performance in a Grand Slam tournament, Riske had reached third round of Australian Open in 2014 and 2017, and fourth round of US Open in 2013.
