Volvo Cars Tennis Open TicketsThe Volvo Car Tennis Open, also known as the Charleston Open, is the largest women’s-only tennis tournament in North America. The tournament traces its origins back to 1973, when the Family Circle magazine lent its support and its name to the event. For most of its early history, the tournament was held at Hilton Head. However, in 2001, the tournament found a new home at the recently built facility in Charleston with a green clay surface. In 2015, the organizers changed the name of the tournament to reflect the new partnership with Volvo Car of North America. Though it isn’t one of the big majors, the tournament has a rich history of supporting and promoting women’s tennis. Past winners have included some of the biggest names in WTA history: Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Steffi Graf, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Martina Hingis, Jennifer Capriati and Justine Henin. Chris Evert is the all-time leading champion with eight titles, including five straight titles between 1974 and 1978.
