It never ceases to amaze me, all that this area has to offer. Yesterday we were able to see the finals in the Family Circle Women's Cup on Daniels Island.
First there were the Doubles played by Andrea
Hlavackova/Liezel Huber & Kristina Mladenovic/Lucie Safarova.
The beautiful, fluid tennis was such fun to watch it hardly mattered who won but finally the titel was taken by A.Hlavackova & L.Huber.
It was a magnificent sunny day & wonderful to be watching some great tennis.
Next came the big final match between
Serena Williams & Jelena Jankovic.
On Saturday, Serena had beat her older sister, Venus, in the semifinals for the top spot.
Serena had claimed the title here in 2008 & again last year.
Her opponent, Jankovic, had won the title in 2007 & was primed to stop Williams from a back to back win.
It was great to have the opportunity to watch these two wonderful athletes play.
Jankovic fought a hard battle but in the end it was Serena who took home the gold.
I enjoyed trying my hand at some amateur sports photography.
I was almost as interested in all of the professionals & their giant lenses as I was with the game.
It was a fun day all the way around.
I hope your Sunday was sunny too!
