While this summer has not been the most successful for 2015 US Open finalist Roberta Vinci on the court, it has been even more devastating off of it.
The Italian announced on Instagram earlier this month that thieves entered her home and stole many valuables, including her trophies.
The USTA, led by president Katrina Adams, took a step to remedy that when Adams presented Vinci with a replacement for her finalist trophy from two years ago.
“Thank you, thank you,” Vinci said. “Now I’m happy. Also my family will be happy.”
Vinci was ecstatic to receive the trophy, and Adams also added that the USTA will replace the US Open women’s doubles trophy that she won in 2012, but that since it is custom-made it will take a little bit more time. All-in-all, Vinci was extremely thankful for the gesture.
“Lot of memories. Was a sad moment for me, but now I’m going to have again this one is so nice,” Vinci said. “Thank you so much.”
The 34-year-old will begin her 2017 US Open campaign in Louis Armstrong Stadium against American Sloane Stephens on Monday.
