For the 14th year, the Family Circle Cup was held on Daniel Island in Charleston and perhaps coincidentally, the 14th seed walked away its winner, Andrea Petkovic coming through a loaded draw that was littered with upsets.
Before Andrea won the biggest title of her career, Charleston experienced a week full of action. We run down the best story lines - from Jana Cepelova’s Cinderella run to an iconic photoshoot on a harbor dock.
At the 2014 installment of the Family Circle Cup, the 14th seed walked away with the title, a dancing Andrea Petkovic winning 7-5, 6-2 over Jana Cepelova to capture the biggest title of her career.
Petkovic came through a draw that was filled with plenty of surprises and upsets, the former world No. 9 rising to the top with wins over former champion Sabine Lisicki, 2012 finalist Lucie Safarova, Australian Open semifinalist Genie Bouchard and a streaking Cepelova, who had defeated Serena Williams in the second round.
Anabel Medina Garrigues and Yaroslava Shvedova capped an impressive week of doubles Sunday with a 7-6 (4), 6-2 win over sisters Hao-Ching and Yung-Jan Chan in the Family Circle Cup final.
Medina Garrigues/Shvedova won their third title as a pair and second this year after winning in Florianopolis in February. In Charleston, the unseeded duo worked their way through the draw, winning two match tiebreaks as well as beating the No. 3 seeds Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears in the semifinals.
