2014 Family Circle Cup
Though the field is yet to be finalized, the 2014 Family Circle Cup already promises clay court battles between some of the world’s top women’s tennis players. Two-time defending champion Serena Williams returns to Daniel Island to continue writing her chapter in the annals of tennis history. With another championship, she would be the only player to win three consecutive cups since Chris Evert won five straight in the 1970s. Serena will have to outlast an impressive field that includes fellow WTA top-ten players Jelena Jankovic and Sara Errani, as well as her sister Venus Williams, who won the title in 2004.
Rather than perching on the shoulder of the chair umpire, attendees can enjoy the action in general-admission grandstand seats during four evening sessions or during Sunday’s finale, when both the singles and doubles brackets will be determined in championship matches. Squeezed in between net-hugging volleys and supersonic aces, special events amplify the week’s festive atmosphere with nightly activities, happy-hour drink deals, and live music. On Wednesday, all guests are encouraged to wear pink in support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure Lowcountry.
Family Circle Cup
Every spring since 1973, tennis fans of all ages descend upon Daniel Island in Charleston for the Family Circle Cup tournament, an annual showcase of the world’s top tennis players. The Cup’s historic legacy has made it one of the women’s tours most venerated tournaments—a reputation affirmed by its list of highly decorated former champions. Tennis legends Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graf, and Serena Williams have combined to win 19 of the Cup titles, forcing them all to convert their ping pong tables into trophy storage mantles.
