Очаровашка! Adorable Anna Chakvetadze as a little girl


Little Anna Chakvetadze

Anna Chakvetadze is not playing professional tennis any more and the presence of this well-liked Russian player has been largely missed by the WTA community. Now that the Moscow-born former world No.5 shared this lovely childhood photo on Instagram, she made us miss her even more. How cute is this future tennis princess!

Throughout her career Chakvetadze was famous for her long hair braid that occasionally even got stuck in her racquet, while in the photo caption for this childhood photo she thanked her mother for the hairdo, saying: “Спасибо маме за прическу.”

The 27-year-old recently got married to a Swiss investment banker with Ukrainian citizenship and launched a fashion company called ACh Factory.

  1. Emman Damian, thanks! 🙂 The collection of photos really got rich over time and I also think it’s very entertaining, especially to first-time visitors. I don’t even think that ACh is producing professional tennis clothes, they have more like casual, everyday stuff. BTW, Anna Chakvetadze retweeted my tweet mentioning this article 😉

  2. I’m really fond of scrolling through the Little Stars section of your blog. They are all cute and adorable! We miss you Anna! For ACh, does anyone in the current tour represents her line?

  3. Emman Damian, I don’t believe that will happen. Much larger tennis-specialized brands still don’t have a WTA representative, I don’t see Anna’s like going that far.
