When I posted those wonderful childhood photos of Samantha Stosur last week, reader VarmozaLinda contacted me on Twitter and referred me to super cute pictures of Italian world No.40 Sara Errani.
Can little Sara be any sweeter? Look at that face and hair, the vintage dress and socks, and not to mention the wooden racquet that Sara’s father Giorgio made for his 3-year-old.
A few years later, for the first day of school, Errani was again amazingly adorable.
The above photo on the right shows Errani after her first tournament victory. She looked more like a boy, unfortunately she got rid of her curls.
Errani is now 24 years old. Her highest ranking was No.31 and she has won two WTA titles (Palermo and Portoroz in 2008).
In Women’s Tennis Blog’s rich collection of childhood photos you can also see Maria Sharapova, Caroline Wozniacki, Jelena Jankovic, Dominika Cibulkova, Monica Seles, and many more. (photos via sara-errani.com)
