There's another tennis star taking over the pickleball world. No, it's not
Sam Querrey – sorry, Sam. It's Rachel Stuhlmann. At least according to the Outkick Culture Department, Rachel is the number one pickleball influencer.

She is also considered the number one tennis influencer by the same folks.
The article on their site states, "Stuhlmann is the first influencer in OutKick history to hold the No. 1 ranking in two sports."

The self-proclaimed "racquet sports girl" took to Instagram to answer some burning questions that at least some of her 316K followers probably had.

Questions like:


● Do you really like pickleball?
● Is it taking over tennis?
● Why do you "love" pickleball, though?
● And, but, like, why play pickleball when you can play tennis? Ugh.

She finishes the post by saying she loves all racquet sports, including tennis, pickleball, padel, ping pong, and squash.

They say all press is good press, and, hey, congrats to Rachel for winning this award. Who knows, maybe this kind of attention means pickleball can finally get its own emoji.
