2007 Charleston champion Jelena Jankovic has entered the 2011 Family Circle Cup. Jankovic, who is currently number 8 in the world, won the 2007 championship in a dramatic final played against Dinara Safina in very high wind. Prior to that final, tornadoes had stuck the area. Last year, Jankovic lost in the quarterfinals to Daniela Hantuchova, in what was one of the best matches of the tournament.
This year's Family Circle Cup will take place April 2-10. Already entered are Melanie Oudin, Maria Sharapova and 2010 champion Samantha Stosur.
