Women's tennis stars descend on Lowcountry for Volvo Car Open

DANIEL ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - Some of the biggest names in women's tennis are playing on Daniel Island over the next week.

Saturday marked the beginning of qualifying matches, but the Volvo Car Open runs through next Sunday April 8 at the  Family Circle Tennis Center. A few recognizable names include Sloane Stephens, Petra Kvitova and Madison Keys, all ranked in the Women's Tennis Association top-20.

Lowcountry native Shelby Rogers was scheduled to participate but had to withdraw because of an injury.

The tournament is hosting special nights during the week including "Pink Out For the Cure" night on Wednesday and "Military Appreciation Night" on Thursday.

A number of ticket packages ranging from $60 to more than $500 are available here. 

The tournament moved from Hilton Head to Charleston in 2001 and was renamed for Volvo in 2015.
