Ana IvanovicRiffing off of a great song by the Killers, "She doesn't look a thing like Venus..."

The no-frills Women's Tennis Blog has an enticing "kiddie pics" feature, with an array of videos and photos of top WTA pros before they became full-fledged women who hit hard(er) and outgrew some sartorial eyesores and baby fat both.

Justine Henin doing her best Harry Potter impression—check. ("Cute and not cute," says WTB.)

Iconic photo of one Monica Seles—check. ("Precious.")

Caroline Wozniacki with a mouth full of metal (braces)—check.

Ana Ivanovic sporting a hat in lieu of her patented visor look—check.

Kim Clijsters in a very atypical polo and skirt—check.

And of course there is some Venus Williams (and Serena) in the mix.

And so much more. Give the page a look. Thou shalt not be disappointed. (Photo courtesy of womenstennisblog.com)
