  • Andre Agassi, former World No. 1 and eight-time Grand Slam winner
  • Andy Roddick, former World No. 1 and US Open winner
  • James Blake, former World No. 4 and Davis Cup winner
  • Mardy Fish, former World No. 7 and six-time ATP title winner

The four champions playing two semifinals, with the winners meeting in a championship match.

Volvo Car Open Tournament Director and General Manager, Bob Moran announced the new addition to the Volvo Car Stadium schedule in November 2015.

"Bringing the PowerShares Series to our stadium expands our reach with fans and explores a new opportunity to showcase amazing tennis," Moran said. "The four players who have committed to our Charleston tournament are all tennis legends.
