World No.37 Riske had stunned top seed Ashleigh Barty in the Wimbledon 2019 to reach her first grand slam quarter-final. For Riske, it was perhaps an unexpected early wedding present but extremely well-earned.
"I had to play aggressive. I had to take it to Ash, the grass definitely brings out the best in me. Hopefully it will rub off and happen in other places too," Riske had said after her win over Barty.
She, however, lost the quarter-final to Serena Williams in three sets.
The 29-year-old Riske is yet to win a Grand Slam title. Her best finish in the Australian Open was a third round. In the French Open and US Open, she has registered round two and round four respectively as her best finishes.
