Rachel Stuhlmann 'honoured' to be compared to Paige Spiranac as she opens up on swapping modelling for tennis court | The Sun

RACHEL Stuhlmann has made a name for herself as the world's No1 tennis influencer – but she doesn't want to stop there.

The American stunner now has her sights set on Paige Spiranac level-fame, revealing she's "really happy" to be compared to the golf influencer.

The 26-year-old tennis pro turned influencer and journalist has amassed 183K followers on Instagram and 55K on TikTok, regularly sharing racy photos on the court.

She says she wants to forge the same path as Paige, 29, who has 3.1 million followers on Instagram and was recently crowned the Sexiest Woman Alive in Maxim's 2022 Hot 100 List.

Rachel told Fitness Gurls: "Paige Spiranac has done so much for the sport of golf and has pushed the sport forward. I have been working hard to make the same impact in tennis."

The St Louis native says she can see a lot of similarities between herself and Paige, as well as between the two sports.

She added: "Golf and tennis are so similar in the sense that they are very traditional and buttoned-up sports."

One of her goals has always been to shine a light on tennis after an array of influencers started representing golf.

She says: "I love the game. I don’t want to just be known as a model who is all about me. I love being attached to tennis – a sport that I love so much!"

Rachel shot to fame earlier this year after being named the world's No1 tennis influencer, by sport blog Outkick.

She proudly displays the title on her Instagram which grew by thousands of followers, but adjusting to life in the limelight has come naturally for the beautiful brunette.

Speaking about her support online she says: "It’s been so fun to see so many people show the same enthusiasm for the sport that I do and support me."

Playing tennis at a college level taught her many great qualities such as time management, having a good work ethic and resilience.

While she's not playing professionally anymore, she says tennis will always hold a special place in her heart.
