Sabine Lisicki beat Caroline Wozniaki in in two sets to become the latest Family Circle Cup champion. Lisicki proved that her earlier defeat of Venus Williams was no fluke, and she took her 16th-seed all the way to the Finals. Wozniacki showed signs of being tired after a three-set match against Dementieva the day before, and only lasted 28 minutes before the first set went to Lisicki. A more contested second set did not alter the course of the 19-year old Lisicki from winning her first WTA Tour event, and the championship match perhaps offered a glimpse of more great tennis to come in the future from these talented teenagers.
Lowcountryoutdoors.com is glad to promote the FCC because tennis is a worthy outdoor pursuit that just about anyone can get out and enjoy. Whether they have access to the wonderful Daniel Island facilities or not, tennis provides great exercise both for those who play competitively and those who play just for fun.
