The players have been spending lots of time off the court all week at the Citi Open in Washington DC.
Alison Riske, who has come into her own in the last year, spent time with kids from Dream For Kids.
Christina McHale has also been spending time with the young ones, conducting a clinic during the week.
McHale has been as high as No.24 in the world and reached her first WTA final at Acapulco this year.
Kurumi Nara of Japan was the star attraction at Junior Team Tennis Day clinics at the Citi Open.
The WTA Rising Star, perhaps the Asia-Pacific's brightest WTA Rising Star, also signed autographs.
Nara won the first WTA title of her blossoming career at the Rio Open in Rio de Janeiro in February.
One of the star attractions of the tournament, Sloane Stephens, has also been a star off the court.
Former Australian Open semifinalist Stephens took part in the Celebrate Our Heroes tennis clinic.
Stephens leapt into the Top 20 and as high as No.11 during her breakthrough season last year.
