We thought it would be fun to take the Top 100 ATP & WTA players from the end of January 2019 and see how they would look if the rankings where based on their Instagram followers.
I didn't see any big surprises in the mens and rankings were quite similar. The women had a much bigger variance with lower ranked players such as Sharapova, Bouchard, Puig and Azarenka making a strong appearance at the top, as you would expect!
Then I combined both to see how they would match up. Serena Williams takes the overall title ahead of the strong 3 male players of Rafa, Roger and Novak.
4 men players in the Top 100 didn't have Instagram Accounts
and 3 women didn't either
