Over the weekend, an American rising star hit the courts for a very well-attended kids clinic...
It was Lauren Davis, one of two American teenagers in the world's Top 100, alongside Madison Keys.
With the WTA's 40 LOVE presence strong, the kids played games with baskets and training balls.
Davis even got into the spirit...
Davis' best WTA results are three quarterfinals - one last fall and two more so far this year.
Another American - former doubles World No.1 Liezel Huber - signed autographs at the USANA booth.
WTA Live All Access Hour presented by Xerox took place Monday, featuring stars like Marion Bartoli.
2011 Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova and 2012 French Open finalist Sara Errani were there too.
And Victoria Azarenka - a two-time Grand Slam champion, at the 2012 and 2013 Australian Opens.
Maria Sharapova has won all four of the Grand Slams, most recently the French Open in 2012.
There are too many to name for Serena Williams - she has a whopping 16 Grand Slam titles to her name.
But the one-year-old Christopher 'Chip' Rafael Nadal has only been around for a few of them.
Williams and Azarenka were also on hand for the WTA's global sponsorship deal announcement with SAP.
As were Stacey Allaster and Steve Peck, the Senior VP of Global Strategic Initiatives with SAP.
And now-retired Mary Joe Fernandez - a former World No.4 - was also at the WTA-SAP announcement.
