Former tennis player-turned-influencer Rachel Stuhlmann, who aspires to be to tennis what Paige Spiranac is to golf, recently pointed out her favorite tennis players in a recent interview with Maxim magazine: Rafael Nadal, Andrey Rublev, Reilly Opelka and Ons Jabeur.
“I have loved Rafael Nadal since I was little; Growing up I always had a poster of him on my wall! He is the best definition of an athlete and champion. Andrey Rublev has always been one of my favorite interviews.
He’s honest, humble and such a nice guy! I also love his style of play – his forehand is fantastic,” said Rachel Stuhlmann for Maxim. “Reilly Opelka is a good friend of mine! I love how he has his own style and hobbies outside of tennis like art and fashion.
He’s also the cutest guy! And everyone loves Ons Jabeur – she’s one of the most personable and entertaining players on the tour! I’ve been to a lot of Ons press conferences in the past but I hadn’t met her in person until I was in the players lounge at the Western & Southern Open a few weeks ago and she came over and gave me a hug which I love so much found!”
Rachel Stuhlmann becomes tennis Paige Spiranac
Former tennis player-turned-influencer Rachel Stuhlmann expressed her desire to become the Paige Spiranac of tennis in a NY Post article.
Paige Spiranac is a well-known tennis influencer with over 3.6 million followers on Instagram alone, and Stuhlmann wants to replicate her success in tennis.
“Paige does her thing with golf and she’s a great person to draw inspiration from, but there’s nothing quite like it in tennis.
And so I just feel like I’d like to keep promoting all the different tournaments that I want to travel to. My main goals are to make the game mainstream and understandable. Whatever it is, I’ve always said yes to the possibilities and within the game and just kept creating content around the sport that gets people excited about it, showing them the different life stories around the game and in a positive way.
I want to keep doing that.” “I really like what she’s doing in golf and I’m trying to do that in tennis, too,” Stuhlmann said. “I’ve been inspired by Paige Spiranac for a while.
She posted a tweet that I could really relate to: “I used to be so worried about being taken seriously and pleasing people who didn’t even like me. Everything changed in my career when I started enjoying my content and doing what I wanted.”
