Alison Riske walked down the aisle with her long-time partner Stephen Amritraj, a former US tennis player himself, of Indian origin.

According to Women’s Tennis Blog, the nuptials were held at Riske’s hometown of Pittsburgh.

And she did perhaps the most ideal thing that would impress an Indian as she danced on a Bollywood song along with her sister.

The duo has been reportedly dating since 2014 before getting engaged a couple of years later.

On the court, Riske has been at her prime of late, winning the $100K event in Subirton before going all the way at the Libema Open.

She then made it to the Wimbledon quarter-finals – her first last-eight appearance at any Grand Slam – before losing to eventual runner-up and countrywoman Serena Williams.

Her beau Stephen is no stranger to the sport either. The 35-year-old peaked to a career high ranking of No. 192 in doubles and No. 973 in singles during his playing days.

Besides, he is the son of ex-Indian Davis Cupper Anand Amritraj and nephew of former top-20 player Vijay Amritraj.

ANOTHER TENNIS COUPLE TIES THE KNOT

Riske and Stephen weren’t the only tennis players to have tied the knot recently.

India’s doubles specialist Divij Sharan, the current world No. 46, got married to ‘best partner’ Samantha Murray of Great Britain.
