Who Would Win if Matches Were Decided on Twitter?


We all know that tennis matches are won and lost between the white lines. 

But what if they were decided somewhere else?

Bright House, an interactive, digital and marketing company based in London, answered that question by analyzing the number of Twitter followers of each of the ATP and WTA's highest-profile players, and deciding winners and losers based on those numbers.

Li has over 23 million followers on Weibo, China's equivalent of Twitter. WTA players had nearly double the followers of their ATP counterparts, while Venus Williams and Gael Monfils proved to get the biggest boost due to their Twitter presence.
