Childhood photo of Elena Dementieva

Childhood photo of Elena Dementieva

It’s been a while since I last added a photo to our series about how women’s tennis players looked when they were kids. Today I decided to feature Elena Dementieva, the gold medalist at the recently-finished Olympic Tennis Event in Beijing.

I have nothing special to say about this photo except that Elena looks really cute, but I can briefly remind you that this little girl is now 26, and in her career she has so far won ten WTA singles and six WTA doubles titles and was a Grand Slam finalist two times.

Elena is currently ranked fifth in the world, while her highest ranking was in 2004 when she was number four.

    Really love this series of kid pics. Suggestion: can you tag them as “kiddie pics” or something? To make it easier for old and new readers to view them all later. 🙂

    Pen, thank you for your comment and your benevolent suggestion. :)Your idea is cool but I have only categories “players” and “tournaments”, and “kiddie pics” don’t fully belong there. However, every time I post a young pic of a player I link to all the previous ones, and also, you can always use “search”.
