Flavia Pennetta Bio and Stats

The first Italian woman to reach the Top 10 in singles, Flavia Pennetta has also achieved tremendous success in doubles. She partnered Gisela Dulko to win the 2011 Australian Open; a month later Pennetta attained the No. 1 doubles rank to become the first Italian — male or female — to hold the top spot in singles or doubles. An accomplished all-court player, Pennetta holds nine singles and 15 doubles titles. On Oct. 7, 2011, the two-time U.S. Open quarterfinalist became the second woman to beat the top-ranked singles and doubles players on the same day as she beat No. 1 singles player Caroline Wozniacki in the Beijing quarterfinals and partnered Dulko to defeat Lisa Raymond and No. 1 doubles player Liezel Huber. Pennetta helped Italy claim Fed Cup championships over the United States in 2009, when she scored the title-clinching victory, and 2010. Pennetta had surgery on her right wrist in 2012. In October, 2013, Pennetta and Kristina Mladenovic beat Samantha Stosur and Zhang Shuai, 6-4, 6-3, to win the Osaka doubles title — Pennetta's 15th career WTA doubles title. In March, 2014, the 32-year-old Pennetta defeated world No. 2 Li Na and world No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska in succession to capture her 10th title — and biggest of her career — at Indian Wells. Pennetta, who considered retirement a year earlier, rose to No. 12 after Indian Wells. When not playing tennis, she loves to ride motorcycles and watch Al Pacino films.
