Tennis is a global game, but sometimes you just can't replicate the feeling of playing at home. This week on the Tennis.com Podcast, Kamau Murray had the chance to chat in person with two people who represent what Charleston is all about.
Shelby Rogers is a veteran of the pro game, while Emma Navarro is a newcomer. They've had different trajectories, experiences, and even goals. But they're both locals when the tour hits Charleston. The support they get is unwavering from the South Carolina faithful, who take great pride in their tennis conquests. From winning a national title as a freshman in Navarro's case, to shocking the world at the US Open as Rogers did in rallying to beat world No. 1 Ashleigh Barty.
