Infographic: Who are the social media champions of Australian Open 2013?

The guys at IBM has analysed social media posts across Twitter, Facebook, news sites, blogs and videos to understand fan sentiment for the first time at the Australian Open this year.

Some of the predictable facts are Maria Sharapova's first tweet (she has garnered more than 115k followers so far), Sloane Stephens tripled her Twitter followers since defeating Serena Williams and Bernard Tomic being the most popular Australian player at the Grand Slam.

There are a couple of surprises though. Firstly, Victoria Azarenka's negative sentiment is way lower than I expected and secondly, Li Na is not even listed among the Top 5 popular female players ranked by number of positive mentions. It doesn't make sense to me.

So, what do you think?
