Anna Kournikova gets ready to return a serve

Tennis star Anna Kournikova, wearing her signature braided ponytail, smiles as she waits for a serve at the 12th Annual World Team Tennis Smash Hits Benefit to support the Elton John AIDS Foundation. This was held at the Bren Events Center in Irvine, California on October 11, 2004. Anna Kournikova was born in 1981, so she turned 23 the year this photo was taken.
