We’ve featured so many players in our Kiddie Pics series and strangely enough only now did one of the most popular women’s tennis players Maria Sharapova get her turn. A lot of Sharapova’s photos are circulating on the Internet and this is my collection compiled over the last couple of years.
In the above photo you can see Maria with her mother Yelena and her father Yuri.
My research tells me that the above photo is from the Australian Open Junior Championships 2002 when Barbora Strycova defeated Sharapova 6-0 7-5 in the finals.
And in case you missed it, check out the video of a junior final between Maria Sharapova and Peng Shuai.
Maria always knew it and this pose tells us: “I know I’m going to be a VIP”.
