Talented young American stars like Jamea Jackson (Atlanta, GA), Cory Ann Avants (Gastonia, NC), Shenay Perry, Ashley Harkleroad (Wesley Chapel, FL), Mashona Washington, Neha Uberoi (pictured left) and Laura Granville (Chicago, IL) gave their veteran opponents a run for their money in some hotly contested early rounds.

Bob Peiffer, President of LCTA and Local League Coordinator for Charleston, rounded up dozens of willing volunteers to answer questions and give away prizes to USTA members at the USTA booth on the grounds of the tournament throughout the week.
