Serena Williams has entered the Family Circle Cup, joining her sister Venus for the 40th edition of the tournament, set for March 1-April 8 at the Family Circle Tennis Center on Daniel Island.

“The Family Circle Cup’s 40th year celebration is an important milestone in women’s tennis,” said Serena Williams. “This tournament has a key place in history, so I’m always happy to compete in Charleston.”

Williams has made five previous appearances in Charleston and her last win in Charleston came in 2008.

“I’ve always loved Charleston. The fans are very knowledgeable, and the intimate atmosphere makes this tournament one of my favorites,” added Williams.

The opportunity to see Venus and Serena play so close to home is too easy to pass up. I’m planning a weekend trip to the Family Circle Cup, so let me know if you will be there. Hope to see ya there!
