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!
Semi-finals Saturday was plagued with thunderstorms on and off all day. So I managed to capture a few behind-the-scenes shots of the Media Center and some of the members of media in action. But somehow, by the end of the night, we were able get in some electrifying tennis!
