1st round of Volvo Car Open begins today

Shelby Rogers - 2016 Volvo Car Open (WCIV)

UPDATE: Evening Matches canceled due to severe weather. Shelby Rogers will finish Tuesday but Madison Keys will NOT play Tuesday night


The first round of the Volvo Car Open kicks off at noon on Daniel Island today, and Lowcountry native Shelby Rogers plays the fourth match on the stadium court.

You might remember Rogers' magical run to the quarterfinals of the French Open last year.

Organizers are hoping Rogers and the other stars lead to big sales. She will face Veronica Cepede Royg of Paraguay.

"I think that the rate we're going now, we'll reach over 95,000 ticket patrons. It's just a beautiful environment to be in. Daniel Island is such a special place."

Families were out checking out the qualifying round Sunday. Our ABC News 4 family will be at Volvo Car Stadium today.
