      Wozniacki slated to play in Family Circle

      CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Former Family Circle Cup champion Caroline Wozniacki is returning to the tournament she won two years ago.

      Family Circle Cup organizers said Thursday that Wozniacki was given a wild card entry into the tournament's main draw. The clay-court event starts Monday.

      It is Wozniacki's fourth appearance and first since she took the 2011 title as the world's top-ranked player. In 2009, Wozniacki lost in the finals here to Sabine Lisicki.

      Wozniacki's entry means there will be six past champions in the field, including 2012 champion Serena Williams.
