Renewed interest in Roger Federer after his win at the Australian Open last year, helped power the Grand Slam king past Novak Djokovic in number of Instagram followers with more than five million. This year didn’t go as well for the Swiss star, as he was eliminated in the 4th round by seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in four sets.

TENNIS’ INSTAGRAM KINGS

Rafael Nadal, who regained the ATP No. 1 ranking for a time, also eclipsed Djokovic’s total, then Federer’s too, to move into first place on Instagram, while Argentina’s Juan Martin Del Potro comes in at number four having yet to eclipse the two-million follower threshold.
