The new-found TV exposure boosted the 24-year-old media influencer’s profile, so much so that she added approximately 30,000 Instagram followers in the final hour of Fritz’s 6-3, 5-7, 6-3. 5-7, 6-7 (4) defeat to Nadal.
Riddle, who has been chronicling her stay in London on her social media profiles, has over 86,000 followers on Instagram and more than 250,000 TikTok followers.
‘What a week, so proud. Till next time,’ she posted on Instagram on Thursday in the aftermath of Fritz’s quarter-final exit.

Riddle was also spotted cheering on her boyfriend at the French Open in May and was by Fritz’s side when he beat Nadal in the Indian Wells final in March to collect his first-ever Masters 1000 crown.
The world No 14, the American arrived at Wimbledon after winning the Rothesay International in Eastbourne for the second time.
Playing in his first Grand Slam quarter-final, Fritz looked set for a maiden appearance in a semi-final at Wimbledon as Nadal struggled with an abdominal injury and looked close to retiring.

Instead, the 22-time Grand Slam winner fought back, defying his own coaches’ advice and leaving Fritz crushed.
‘[This] probably hurts more than any loss I’ve ever had,’ he said after the match.
‘I feel confident saying this is number one because literally after the match was over, I was sitting there and I felt like crying, like I wanted to cry. I’ve never felt like that ever after a loss. I’ve never felt like I could cry after a loss.
‘Just that’s telling enough to know that this one hurt more than any other one has hurt before.’
