From knee-high kids to sky-high careers – players look back at childhood photos for Olympic Book


Looks like Women’s Tennis Blog’s Kiddie Pics section inspired the theme of the ITF’s Olympic Book, aiming to promote the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Tennis Events. Aspire, Inspire: Celebrating Tennis at the Olympics 2012 includes 36 world’s leading players posing with photos of themselves as a child and talking about their heroes. Of course, there are other features such as players talking about their expectations from the upcoming Olympics and words of wisdom from tennis legends.

The commemorative book is not for sale, but you can win a signed copy and ahead of the Olympics an online version will be available. There is a 20-day competition already at large at the ITF website. Your task is to give a correct answer to whose childhood photo is in the picture and you could be one of the lucky winners. Every day a new photo is presented. Hint for today: Gael Monfils 😉 (photos via HCFoo’s Tennis Blog)
