It was Riske’s wedding on Monday and social media users were entralled to see the tennis star dancing to a Bollywood dance number.
Riske - who beat World Number 1 Ashleigh Barty in this year's Wimbledon - married her long-time beau Stephen Amritraj in Pittsburgh.
Riske opted for the dance track from the movie "Baar Baar Dekho" and later posted the video on Twitter for her Indian followers saying "here’s a little Bollywood to try to win over your affection!"

Some users commented that even her husband Stephen Amritraj - son of former Indian tennis player Vijay Amritraj - would not understand the songs as he is from south India.
Awesome! The song on which you danced on is sung in North Indian language but would likely not have have been understood by your groom @stephenamritraj and his family as his family roots are from southern India.🤪— Homo Sapien (@Animal_H_Sapien) 22 July 2019
Fabulous! A bollywood lover waves at you and wishes both of you eternal happiness and togetherness!☺️🙏— Ravi Kapoor ☯️ (@RaviKapoor) 22 July 2019
