It was another EXCITING year for me to be covering the Credit One Charleston Open!!!
Since 1973, the Charleston Open has been a pioneer in women’s professional sports, creating milestones that over the years have directly influenced the popularity of women’s professional tennis. Much has changed over the years. But to this day, the tournament remains the largest women’s only tennis tournament in North America. This year’s roster included 5 of the Top 10 women on tour, 5 past champions, and 5 Grand Slam champions. Previous winners include notable names like Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, Martina Navratilova, Serena Williams, Tracy Austin, Martina Hingis, Jennifer Capriati, Nadia Petrova, Madison Keys…and so many more!
Day 3 was the first round of the main draw, featuring some AMAZING singles and doubles action. The stands were packed! Plus there were a ton of great autograph sessions and player interviews for fans to enjoy. The ball kids got a private meeting (and group photo) with Storm Hunter. And Sloan Stephens made a VIP appearance after her win!!!
