Family Circle Cup--what's happening around the grounds

Murphy Jensen interviewed Liezel Huber on the lawn stage this evening. Huber talked about how one match can turn a player's career and give that player the confidence of knowing that she belongs at the top. Earlier in the week, Jensen and Huber were guests at a luncheon for doubles enthusiasts.

For the last couple of days, there have been flying exhibitions over Daniel Island.

Chip Brooks and Snezana Jankovic found a quiet spot outside to have a chat after Jelena Jankovic was upset by Daniela Hantuchova.

The food court vendors at the tournament are using biodegradable utensils and plates made of recycled materials. That's the good news. However, with the 2008 disappearance of the falofel stand, and the 2009 disappearance of veggie dogs in the hot dog selection, there is very little left for vegetarian and/or vegan diners.
Patty Schnyder and Shelby Rogers won the exhibition match that was held in the stadium tonight. They defeated Ekaterina Makarova and Marie-Eve Pelletier. While I was watching the match, I realized that this could well be the last time I ever see Patty play, other than--perhaps--on television. This was a sad thought; I have been a big fan for many years.
