World No. 6 Venus Williams, a seven-time Grand Slam champion and 2004 Family Circle Cup titlist, has officially entered the 2009 Family Circle Cup. Making her fourth appearance in Charleston, Williams boasts a 10-2 record at this event, including a semifinal appearance in 2007. She joins World No. 2 Serena Williams and World No. 7 Vera Zvonareva in the 2009 Family Circle Cup player field as three Top 10 players are set to headline the Family Circle Cup, a Premier Event on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour, scheduled April 11-19 at the Family Circle Tennis Center in Charleston, SC.
Serena is currently still in the hunt for a Championship Trophy at the Australian Open. Although Venus is out of the singles draw, the sisters are looking impressive in their doubles bracket. I’m looking forward to photographing them again this year while I continue my position as one of the Official Photographers of the Family Circle Cup.
