Welcome to Charleston, USA! This city in South Carolina will host the first Premier clay event of 2011. After the back-to-back Premier Mandatory tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami, some players are tired, but many more have decided to stay in the USA for the last event there until the summer and see how they fare at this prestigious green clay event. It is the lone event on tour with its surface. In the top half of the draw, we have first-seeded Kveta Peschke and Katarina Srebotnik and fourth-seeded Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Meghann Shaughnessy, but the two seeds on the bottom half of the draw are both new teams this week. The second seeds will be American veterans Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond while Vania King partners Barbora Zahlavova Strycova to be the third seeds. Sania Mirza and Elena Vesnina are another popular team, while Daniela Hantuchova and Maria Kirilenko, another new pairing, should be a team to watch in Charleston. Only you can decide who will win this title. Vote now as the tournament kicks off!!!
