When we last saw Kiki Bertens in Charleston, she was about to head out of town with a smile on her face, a $137,250 check in her purse and the use of a Volvo SUV for two years, the spoils of being the 2018 Volvo Car Open champion. Bertens entered last year’s tournament with the world No. 27 ranking...
Let’s face it. Serena and Venus Williams, the combined face of women’s tennis in the United States, won’t be in this year’s Volvo Car Open. And, the Williams sisters won’t be around forever. Serena, arguably the greatest woman ever to play tennis, is a 37-year-old mother who focuses on only the...
It has served as a launching pad for some of the greatest young tennis players in the world, and it has turned mere humans into legends. The Volvo Car Open has had quite the history since its inception in 1973 when the Family Circle Cup first held court on Hilton Head Island. Thousands of players...
While in town, several Volvo Car Open players visit young patients in the MUSC Children’s Hospital, the tournament’s official charity. VCO players engage with inner city youth interested in tennis by taking part in the “Tennis in the City” program held on Sunday of tournament week! Since its...

Bishop England boys’ golf coach John Greavu will take a back seat this year as he turns the reins over to assistant Jeff Burton. The reason? Greavu’s son, Christian, is an outstanding lacrosse player at Mercer University and it’s not unusual for the elder Greavu and his wife, Lori, to travel to...
Several weeks ago, I purchased a 22-foot Pathfinder bay boat. It has taken a bit of time to set-up and organize the boat to suit my nearshore fishing needs. With daylight savings time last week and spring arriving this week, I have been rushing to have the boat ready for the upcoming season....
When Hanahan High School baseball coach Brian Mitchell talked about his team prior to the 2019 season, he said pitching would be the Hawks’ strength this spring. That prediction has been precise as the Hawks have received excellent outings from their hurlers. That was totally evident the nights of...
After a year of injuries, doubt and the thought of life forever without tennis, Charleston native Shelby Rogers is ready.
