A pair of American stars headed to the USS Yorktown on Sunday morning for a very cool experience.
Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Alison Riske played mini-tennis on the World War II-era aircraft carrier.
With Charleston's beautiful Ravenel Bridge in the background, Mattek-Sands and Riske had a hit.
Both Americans are in the top quarter of the draw this week and could meet in the quarterfinals.
Meanwhile, their fellow WTA stars - including Chanelle Scheepers - were getting down with the kids.
Scheepers hit with kids, did drills and signed autographs on center court as part of Kids Day.
WTA Rising Star Belinda Bencic also headed out to center court to meet the kids and sign autographs.
Bencic made her first big breakthrough at this tournament a year ago, making it to the semifinals.
The Swiss, a very popular figure in Charleston, stopped to take selfies with some of her fans.
There was lots of fun away from the courts as well with the Family Circle Cup's Easter Egg hunt.
And then, of course, the usual back-room deals...
The Easter Bunny himself made an appearance too. Stay tuned for more from the Family Circle Cup!
