Kristina Mladenovic is among the many WTA stars who have stopped off at the WTA booth in Melbourne.
They've all had the opportunity to meet fans, pose for photos with them and sign some autographs.
Jarmila Gajdosova, a former Top 25 player on the way back up, did exactly that with this young fan.
Julia Goerges, who pulled off one of the upsets of the tournament over Sara Errani, at the WTA booth.
Goerges is a former Top 20 player and her form in Melbourne hinted at a return to that elite...
Alison Riske has come on strong over the last several months, particularly at the Grand Slams.
The young American has reached the third round or better at the last three Grand Slam tournaments.
But getting closer with the fans is only one of the exciting things going on at the WTA booth...
The WTA stars have had a chance to pose with the Road To Singapore road sign for Melbourne.
And one of the frontrunners to go to the WTA Championships in Singapore this year is Simona Halep.
Halep has had a breakthrough fortnight at the Aussie Open, reaching her first Grand Slam quarterfinal.
Maybe some of the young fans who stop off at the WTA booth will get to Singapore one day too...
