Charleston ready for 1,000,000th fan

Some time soon, the 1,000,000th Family Circle Cup fan will enter the gates of the Family Circle Cup. Right now,  there are only 12,326 fans to go until the lucky 1,000,000th appears. That individual will receive four box seats for April 2, plus two Bauer International Box Holder Appreciation Reception invitations for April 2. The reception will be held at the Daniel Island Club main ballroom, and top players will be attending.

The recipient of the prize will also get terrace level tickets for the remainder of the tournament, as well as valet parking. She or he will perform the coin toss for the fourth match on April 2, receive $250 to spend at any food vendor or concession stand, and $250 to spend in the Family Circle Cup Merchandise Tent. The winner will also get various items autographed by the top eight seeds, a month of tennis lessons from Instinctive Academy pros, and  a behind-the-scenes tour, including lunch in the Family Circle Cup Player Lounge.

The 2012 Family Circle Cup, which includes a 40th anniversary celebration attended by the Original 9, takes place March 31-April 8. Tickets are available here. The top seed is world number 5 Agnieszka Radwanska, and five former Charleston champions will be playing. Those on hand for an exhibition and other anniversary events will include Billie Jean King, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, and Virginia Wade.
