S.Williams will likely skip Hilton Head tourney

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- The father of reigning U.S. Open tennis champion Serena Williams on Friday said he is almost certain his daughter will honor the NAACP boycott of South Carolina and skip the Family Circle Cup tournament on Hilton Head Island in April. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has called for an economic boycott of the state as long as the Confederate flag, which it says is a symbol of slavery, flies over the Statehouse. Flag defenders say it represents Southern heritage.
