Renewed interest in Roger Federer after his win at the Australian Open a couple years ago, helped power the Grand Slam king past Novak Djokovic in number of Instagram followers with more than five million. Last 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.

INSTAGRAM KINGS OF TENNIS

Rafael Nadal, who regained the ATP No. 1 ranking for a time, also eclipsed Djokovic’s total, then Federer’s too, to become the first male tennis player with more than 10 million followers, while Argentina’s Juan Martin Del Potro and Andy Murray are tied at number four having yet to eclipse the two-million follower threshold.

Kings of Instagram: Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal tops in followers among men's tennis stars

Noticeably absent from our list of the most popular men’s tennis players on the photo-sharing platform are former No. 1’s Andre Agassi and Boris Becker, both of whom finished just outside the top ten.
