Charleston miscellany

2010 marks the tenth year that the Family Circle Cup has been held in Charleston. Before that, it was held in Hilton Head, South Carolina. The tournament has a very rich history, and is an important part of the foundation of women's pro tennis.

Family Circle Cup 7th seed Vera Zvonareva, who is playing in the final tomorrow, is using a new Prince EXO3 black 100 racquet. Prince announced on Wednesday that it has added Zvonareva as one of the company's sponsored athletes.

Players who appear in the finals tomorrow will receive Tiffany necklaces as gifts from the Family Circle Cup tournament.

Who knew that Michaella Krajicek was going to be here...and make the doubles final? It's nice to have her in Charleston again. On the other side of the story--I miss regulars Elena Dementieva and Katarina Srebotnik.

Sam Stosur and Vera Zvonareva have played each other six times, and Stosur leads 4-2. Stosur won their last four matches. Tomorrow's final will mark the first time the two have ever played each other on clay.
