player in the open era to win the US Open title (Source: AP) Related News “And one more thing I have something else to say if it’s okay” said Flavia Pennetta newly-crowned US Open champion at the presentation ceremony inside Arthur Ashe Stadium It had just begun to drizzle in New York and the trophy was yet to be hoisted by the maiden Grand Slam champion But Pennetta’s request forced the chairman of the USTA Katrina Adams to place back the trophy on the dais that she had just picked up and and pick up the microphone she had just placed down The mike was handed over to Pennetta Share This Article Related Article “Before this tournament began my family team and I had to take a really tough decision” the 33-year old said “So I would like to tell you all that this will be my last match in New York I will retire at the end of this year as a tennis player” Chairman Adams looked like she had seen a ghost reaching out to grab Pennetta’s shoulder Up in the president’s box Matteo Renzi Italy’s prime minister specially flown in to watch two of his country’s finest participate in the first all-Italian US Open gasped Up in Pennetta’s box boyfriend Fabio Fognini – the man who knocked out Rafa Nadal in the third round of this tournament – held a hand to his face He would later concede that he had no idea she was contemplating retirement The crowd too clapping up until this moment roared a collective ‘Nooooo’ Only Roberta Vinci the losing finalist and Pennetta’s best friend on tour didn’t react She had been informed during their post-match hug “No no no no” Pennetta cried “Don’t feel bad for me I’m happy This is a dream for any player to retire like this on a high I am glad I could do this in front of you New Yorkers You know I love this place” She does She really does Outside of New York the 26th ranked Pennetta had reached just one Grand Slam quarterfinals – at the Aussie Open in 2014 In NY though Pennetta had reached four quarterfinals and one semifinal in 2013 Then today she appeared in her first ever final won it in straight sets and as the sun set behind rain clouds she rode away as a former player into the city’s drenched skyline The day had begun on a sunnier note Two hours before the women’s final first time finalists Pennetta and Vinci were spotted chatting away at a restaurant by Boris Becker Surprised Becker is said to have asked them “Guys do you have any idea that you are going to take on each other in a Grand Slam final soon” Vinci forever wearing a smile one that only got broader since she beat Serena Williams in the semifinal replied: “Yes Boris But we are sisters no” Pennetta and Vinci have known each other a long time They were born one year apart in the month of February in 1982 and 1983 respectively “We first play each other when we were nine years old in a country club in my home town of Brindisi” Pennetta would say later “When we were growing up we even stay together share a room for five years in Rome She’s my best friend we have shared so many experiences together And to have her there in a Grand Slam final couldn’t get any better” There were pros and cons to lifelong buddies meeting each other in the final of course Pro: they knew each others’ game inside out Con: they knew each others’ game inside out So as the two thirty-year olds – first time in a women’s final in the open era – walked out side by side to commence the 128th title-decider the spectators (most of them who bought tickets to witness Serena create history) expected nothing less than a tough three-set battle And so it began Vinci vs Pennetta Northern Sicily vs Southern Italy Single-handed backhand vs double-fisted backhand The one who beat World No 1 Serena vs the one who beat No2 Halep In Serena’s backyard though it was Serena’s nemesis who cracked first And that glorious backhand played to vintage perfection in the semis against the American was the first to cave in In the fourth game of the first set Pennetta repeatedly attacked Vinci’s backhand And Vinci repeatedly chopped her returns under the tape Pennetta broke to make it 3-2 and consolidated to go up 4-2 But Vinci immediately broke back Even as her backhand slices were giving way her ripping forehand seemed to be working just fine She tore into Pennetta’s weak second serves and soon the set was heading into a tiebreak At 6-all and 2-all in the shoot-out the girls got into a crosscourt rally trading fizzing forehands for fun But just as Vinci spotted an opening and looked to change direction – going for the kill down-the-line – the open face of the racquet shanked the ball into the stands And Pennetta had the mini break A big swerving serve tearing away from Vinci’s reach gave her the tiebreak 7-4 The first set was won 7-6 It didn’t take Pennetta very long to break Vinci’s serve and nerve in the second set But it did take her to hit the most outrageous winner of the set match and day to achieve it Sometime in the rally to kickoff Vinci’s first service point of the set Pennetta found herself back-trotting well past her baseline to retrieve a deep sailing slice She double-handed it back to the other side of the court Only the shortness of its length dragged Vinci ahead From the net Vinci sliced the ball to Pennetta’s forehand and prepared for the volley The volley went deep to Pennetta’s backhand again whose lunge barely got the ball to the other side – high and in Vinci’s smash radar The overhead put-away clipped the rim of Vinci’s racquet trickling down for a drop winner But somehow Pennetta hared across to the service line picked the dying ball up before the second bounce and swung it past a baffled Vinci to win the point Three points later she had the break And soon the match and trophy as well “Put your hands together for two great champions” chairman Adams announced as the on-court rivals turned sisters once more for the presentation ceremony Just as the crowd began their applause Vinci interrupted “Wait so if I’m champion also can I share this trophy with Flavia” Both girls hands clasped around the other’s shoulder chortled It was hard to tell which one of them had won and which one had lost And which one was soon going to call it a day Aged and rare Flavia Pennetta became the second Italian woman to win a Grand Slam title edging compatriot Roberta Vinci 7-6 (7-4) 6-2 in the US Open final Italian Francesca Schiavone won the 2010 French Open At 33 years and 199 days Flavia Pennetta became the oldest first-time Grand Slam women’s champion in the Open era Incidentally this was only the
