Day 1 Interviews @FamilyCircleCup: McHale, Riske, Rogers
Stephan Fogleman, Tennis East Coast
Christina McHale made her first-ever WTA final two months ago in Acapulco. Alison Riske is just off a career high of #45 three weeks ago. Shelby Rogers is at a career-high ranking of #110. These are players on a roll. And they were all at or near the draw ceremony, which was ‘co-hosted’ by Riske and McHale.
None of them want to admit to thinking about winning the event. As always, thank you, WTA Players Media School.
They all love Family Circle Cup, and it’s an extra special place for Riske and Rogers. They wore matching pink while practicing together earlier today.
McHale will face a qualifier in the first round, while Alison Riske will take on Chanelle Scheepers and Shelby Rogers will hope to upset 10 seed Daniela Hantuchova.
