Posted on Apr 13, 2015 12:56am ET

Marking our 15th year in Charleston, this installment of the Family Circle Cup has been as memorable as any. Here, five moments we will remember for quite a while. 

Keys, Kerber Make Inspiring Runs to Final
Madison Keys and Angelique Kerber squared off in the singles final, their respective runs to it both surprising and inspiring. Keys is far from a clay expert, but hadn’t lost a set en route to the final, and Kerber turned around a “tough few weeks” to make the championship match, the 13th of her career. It was Kerber who would win the memorable final, 6-2, 4-6, 7-5, becoming the 23rd winner of the Cup and capture her fourth WTA trophy.
