Charleston: 8 straight different champions and 13 in 14 years

This tournament always seems to have high quality champions, but every year a different one. Only Henin won it twice since 1998. And with Wozniacki not playing this year, a very good chance for the trend to continue.

'98 - Coetzer
'99 - Hingis
'00 - Pierce
'01 - Capriati
'02 - Schnyder
'03 - Henin
'04 - V Williams
'05 - Henin
'06 - Petrova
'07 - Jankovic
'08 - S Williams
'09 - Lisicki
'10 - Stosur
'11 - Wozniacki

In addition, no player has been a 3-time Charleston finalist since Martina Hingis ('97, '99, '01). Henin, Serena, Wozniacki, Zvonareva and Schnyder were all twice in the final.

Schnyder lost that 02 final after beating GOAT Serena and Capriati.

Wasn't the 02 champion Majoli? And, Wozniacki was in the final in 2009 as well.

Ana Ivanovic is now retired.
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.
