Fritz' girlfriend Morgan Riddle on whirlwind change to becoming a Tennis WAG: "I never had the desire to be an influencer"

The girlfriend of Taylor Fritz has become one of the most prominent members of the tennis community that actually doesn't hold the racquet daily.

She's become a tennis influencer of sorts bringing a lot of new people to the sport hey boyfriend plays for a living. It's not somethign she wanted to do but it kind of happened by chance. In an exclusive talk to, Morgan explained how it all came to be:

"I never had the desire to be an influencer. I was in Australia about this time last year and I was in a job I wasn’t super in love with. I knew I wanted to make a change but I was planning to quit that job and just find a different corporate job. The day that I’d quit, I made a “get ready with me for my boyfriend’s tennis match” on TikTok, just for fun. "

She continued:

"I was trying to pick out an outfit so I just threw up this video not even really thinking. I went to bed that night and when I woke up the next morning in Australia, the video had over a million views. So then the next day I did another one and then I did another one and I’ve kind of been doing that ever since. Then I started getting brand deals and offers from companies for TikTok and I just stuck with it and I didn’t apply for other jobs.’

She also spoke about filming for Netflix's Breaking Point:

"We found out about it, I think like two weeks before the Australian Open last year and then they started filming us at the competition,’ Morgan remembered. It happened really fast. I think at first everyone was kind of on the fence about it. It was just a new weird thing to be seeing Netflix camera crews around tournaments and stuff when the tennis world is so small."
