Flavia Pennetta tells La Gazzetta dello Sport that she will play doubles with Svetlana Kuznetsova next year. Pennetta’s longtime doubles partner, Gisela Dulko, just retired.

A former top-ranked doubles player and Top 10 singles player, Pennetta was beset with injuries in 2012. She also told the newspaper that she has split from longtime coach Gabriel Urpi and will begin to work with Karim Perona and Salva Navarra, who once worked with Juan Carlos Ferrero and Tommy Robredo.
