Caroline Wozniacki will join former World No. 1 Venus Williams, World No.7 Madison Keys and Olympic gold medalist Monica Puig at the Volvo Car Open tournament April 1-9, 2017 on Daniel Island in Charleston.
This will be Wozniacki’s fifth time competing in a tournament in Charleston. She consistently plays well in the area, holding a 14-3 record in Charleston including being a 2009 Volvo Car Open finalist and winning the 2011 title.
Wozniacki suffered injuries that prevented her from playing in the first half of the 2016 Women’s Tennis Association season. So far this season, she has won titles in Tokyo and Hong Kong as well as making the semifinals of the U.S. Open last month.
“Caroline plays very well on the green clay in Charleston,” Eleanor Adams, Volvo Car Open tournament manager, said. “She is one of the most talented and charismatic players on the Tour, spending two seasons at World No. 1. Our fans will be so excited to watch her compete again next April,”
Wozniacki has not played in Charleston since 2013.
“I’m very pleased with my past results in Charleston,” Wozniack aidi. “The feel of the tournament is very relaxed and I always enjoy playing there. I’m looking forward to visiting again in April and hopefully winning the title again.”
Volvo Car Open tickets are now on sale, including individual, group and travel packages. Tickets range from $25 per individual session to an all-inclusive weeklong package for $525.
The 2017 tournament will debut the Volvo Ace Club, a membership program providing exclusive amenities and benefits during the tournament including the Ace Lounge, a hospitality tent with first-class accommodations like live entertainment, air conditioning and more food options.
