Agassi, Roddick to play in Charleston during Volvo Cars Open

Former World No. 1-ranked men’s tennis stars Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick will take part in PowerShares Series tour matches during the Volvo Cars Open (formerly the Family Circle Cup) on Saturday, April 9, at Volvo Cars Stadium. Former WTA players James Blake and Mardy Fish will also participate.

The series, which consists of a 12-city North American tour, features the four former stars playing two semifinals with winners meeting in a championship match.

“Bringing the PowerShares Series to our stadium expands our reach with fans and explores a new opportunity to showcase amazing tennis,” Bob Moran, Tournament Director and General Manager of the Volvo Cars Open, said Thursday. “The four players who have committed to our Charleston tournament are all tennis legends. For everyone in attendance this night will be the first, and potentially only, chance to watch these icons play live.”
