    I am an aspiring young writer here for the Family Circle Cup as well! I love your writing and hope that I will get a chance to possibly meet and gain some tips from you this week. Tomorrow the main matches that I will be watching are Cirstea vs Malek and Townsend vs Petkovic. Hope to see you around!

      If you get a chance to attend, please post your experience and if you meet Linz, I need to know the “scoop” LOL!

    The more I hear about FCC, the more I want to be there (I’m already in love with Charleston – the Lee Bros. will be in Nashville this week. So psyched!), and this post is strengthening my resolve to get myself there in 2014 or 2015.

    Donna Vekic or Kristina Mladenovic seem like they might be fun interviews. If I _were_ there, I’d be sad at having to choose between Lepchenko v. McHale and Burdette vs. Mladenovic (and Rodionova v. Mattek-Sands on AG court at the same time, that has a ton of potential as well).

    How far are the courts from each other? Are the paths between them relatively clear or congested? Looking forward to your reports (and tips for future visitors)!

    I can not wait to read more about Charleston. Glad you picked to attend a WTA only tournament. Besides S Williams, could you get an interview with Wozniacki. On Wozniacki, please discuss her coach situation, 2012 struggles and where she believes her game is headed. Since S Williams, V Williams and Stephens will probably have crowded round tables, could you arrange an one on one with Stosur or Barthel. On Stosur, ask about her time since winning 2011 USO and on Barthel, ask her where she needs to improve her game.

    Have fun!!!

    Please interview Genie Bouchard and/or watch her matches! The Canadian (who qualified for this tournament) will be a breakout star.

    Lindsay, this might be a good time to have a chat with Francesca Schiavone, a player who seems to be universally liked and admired, but one whom you might not have too many more chances to talk to. Reflections on her long career, her epic match with Kuznetsova, her favorite cities to visit, whether she thinks doubles is on a bit of an upswing (I think so), how to make it more tenable for top players to play doubles, at least occasionally.

    Sounds like a great tournament. It always looks attractive on tv. I would second the chat with both Mona and Fran. I’d love to know what both of their goals are and how they would rate their progress so far this year. Could be quite an interesting contrast between a fading player ( I say this with affection!) and a rising (hopefully) player

    Yes, any interview with Genie Bouchard would be greatly appreciated.

    Judging by their Facebook accounts, the Family Circle Cup and the Abierto Monterrey are arguably the most fan-friendly event on the WTA.
