Maria Kirilenko is enjoying a wonderful week in Indian Wells, where she is awaiting her biggest career semifinal against Maria Sharapova, having reached it with two Top 10 victories (over Agnieszka Radwanska and Petra Kvitova). Therefore, now is a nice occasion to share with you cute childhood photos of Kirilenko that she's recently shared on her once-again-active Twitter account.
Father Yuri Kirilenko and mother Olga holding little Maria. How cute is this baby hat?
And this is little Maria trying to pull her tights higher.
Five years ago (can't believe it's been five years already!) we also featured pics of Kirilenko as a little girl in our well-known series Childhood Photos and Videos of Women's Tennis Players.
