Justine, Amelie, and Martina to play Charleston!

Justine Henin-Hardenne, Amélie Mauresmo, and Martina Hingis enter 2007 Family Circle Cup


First time in Family Circle Cup history that these
players all compete in the same year!

Since computer rankings were started in 1973, only 15 women have achieved the status of World #1 on the women’s professional tennis tour. This year, the Family Circle Cup is proud to announce that three members of that elite club will be joining a host of other top players in battling for one of the most coveted trophies in women’s tennis. Current World #1 player and two-time Family Circle Cup champion Justine Henin-Hardenne (2003 & 2005), who has held the #1 position for 46 weeks in her career, has officially entered the 2007 Family Circle Cup. Two-time Grand Slam champion Amélie Mauresmo, who throughout her career, has held the World #1 ranking for 39 weeks will also be competing in this year’s event. Joining these superstars in Charleston is 7th ranked Martina Hingis, another two-time Family Circle Cup champion (1997 & 1999), who has also held the world number one ranking for an incredible 209 weeks in her career. This year marks the first time in the history of the tournament that all three of these former No. 1 players will be competing at the Family Circle Cup in the same year.

“We are extremely proud to have three of the game’s best coming to Charleston this year. Over the last couple of years, these three young women have played such an instrumental role in leading their sport,” commented Robin Reynolds, Family Circle Cup Tournament Director. “The Family Circle Cup has always been about highlighting the top women tennis players in the world, and with our announcement today we are pleased to continue that tradition.”

No word about Nadia, who dominated on the green clay last year.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Too bad I'm not a big fan of any of them. I'm trying my hardest to get to the FCC this April, since I live in South Carolina. Well. Seeing Mauresmo would be pretty nice, really.

I know Patty Schnyder is going, and Petrova is probably going.

Not sure about Kuznetsova, but she played in 2006. Safina might play too.

Looks like the best field yet.

I swear, this year I really am going to yell out at Justine, "Justine, will you marry me?" The gal needs a little confidence boost these days!

Let's hope they all stay healthy through Key Biscayne. This leg of the season usually claims a number of casualties.
