Flavia Pennetta won the final of the US Open, one of the most important tennis tournaments in the world, winning on his compatriot Roberta Vinci, for two sets to nil. During the awards ceremony, Flavia Pennetta has also announced his retirement. It is the first victory of a Grand Slam (Wimbledon, Roland Garros, US Open and Australian Open) in his career, in a single tournament.
Flavia Pennetta is the first Italian to win a Grand Slam since 2010, when Francesca Schiavone won Roland Garros. In general, the final today was historic: before it had never happened that two tennis players or tennis players Italians arrived in a Grand Slam final. In the semifinals, also, Vinci had already achieved something “historic”: she beat Serena Williams and so prevented her from winning all the Grand Slam of 2015, a result obtained for the last time by Steffi Graf in 1988.
