Rafael Nadal and Serena williams are occupying the driving seat in terms of followership on Instagram a new finding has revealed
Leading the ranking on this well-known surprise social network is not Roger Federer who, despite being certainly the most loved tennis player in the world, does not enjoy this particular record.
In first place among the men tennis players with the most followers on Instagram is the Spaniard Rafael Nadal with over 11 million followers, behind him is Novak Djokovic at exactly 9 million with Roger Federer in the third place with 8.6 million followers.
For the Swiss, the lack of activity on this social network and probably the unfamiliarity weighs heavily. In the Top Ten, tennis players like Zverev and Tsitsipas barely exceed one million while Daniil Medvedev is doing very badly, with only 545 thousand followers.
The reigning champion at the US Open Dominic Thiem also did well, boasting as many as 1 million and 400 thousand followers and is among the young players with the most followers.
The recent exploit at Wimbledon has also brought great growth to the blue number one and Top Ten Matteo Berrettini who has also had an increase on this social network: the Italian tennis player has just exceeded 900 thousand followers and flies straight towards the million.
