Video: Leylah Fernandez makes TikTok debut with hilarious dance
Canadian player Leylah Fernandez finally made her debut on short-form video platform TikTok on Monday.
In the hilarious video, the 19-year-old can be seen alongside two of her friends, with all of them dancing to a funky tune.
Well, at least at first, it seems like they are dancing. But all they are doing is holding a few poses and letting the app do the rest. Fernandez has applied a filter to the video which gives the impression that the people in it are dancing.
Sharing the clip on her social media, the Canadian implied that she used the filter because she loved to dance but didn't know how to.

The tennis prodigy shared another amusing message, asking fans to follow her for more cringe-worthy content.
"Guess who finally made a TikTok. Follow for more cringe-worthy content," Fernandez wrote.
The US Open runner-up has been out of action since suffering a foot fracture at Roland Garros earlier this year, but hopes to return to the courts in time for the last Grand Slam of the season at Flushing Meadows.
