While some players were regularly training and some like Vera Zvonareva were building up their comebacks, twenty-year-old Sloane Stephens spent Thanksgiving in exactly the same way as 13 years ago. This old photo below was taken before Sloane even started playing tennis and now she's ranked 12th in the world.

A perfect addition to my selection of childhood photos of WTA players!
By the way, the WTA Tour made a nice compilation of tweets of women's tennis players for Thanksgiving.
