Posted: Updated:

2011 Family Circle Cup champion, Caroline Wozniacki, will return to Charleston for the 41st Family Circle Cup, March 30th – April 7th, 2013.

The tournament has extended a main draw wild card to World No. 9, Wozniacki. This will be her fourth appearance in the Family Circle Cup, where she boasts an impressive 12-2 record and an active five-match win streak.

"We are thrilled to welcome Caroline back to Charleston," said Eleanor Adams, Family Circle Cup Tournament Manger. "We know our fans will be excited. She's a talented, young tennis star whose personality makes her one you love to watch."

In 2011, she defeated Elena Vesnina 6-2, 6-3 to take home her first Family Circle Cup title. Two years earlier, she was a finalist in the tournament losing to Sabine Lisicki.

Wozniacki's return makes six past champions in the 2013 tournament: Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Sabine Lisicki, Jelena Jankovic and Sam Stosur.
