Family Circle Cup Concludes with Williams Win

April 21, 2008 04:50 PM

Serena Williams capped off a week of tennis at the Family Circle Cup with a win over Vera Zvonareva to take home the title. Williams beat Zvonareva 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 on the clay courts of Daniel Island, SC for her first Family Circle Cup title. The win gives Williams her Serena Williams- FCC 2008third title of the year and puts her in an elite group with past Family Circle Cup winners, such as Steffi Graf, Martina Navritalova, and Martina Hingis.
It was also a big week for the USTA South Carolina with events throughout the tournament. What started off as a cold and damp week in Charleston, turned out to be perfect tennis weather for the weekend.
Wednesday at The Family Circle Cup was USTA member appreciation day and kid’s day, with a guest appearance from Ronald McDonald. There was also an on court wheelchair tennis demonstration, along with a QuickStart exhibition. Up and coming pro Alexa Glatch stopped by at the member appreciation event to sign autographs. Members also enjoyed food and drinks and raffled off items.
