Flushing Meadows:

#47 Roberta Vinci
5' 4" 132lb RH 2H-BH
Flushing Meadows:

#26 Flavia Pennetta
5'7¾" 128lb RH 2H-BH

    On Saturday at Flushing Meadows, in the final of the 2015 US Open, the 2014 champion at Indian Wells (and a 2013 US Open semifinalist), 33 year old 26th seeded #26 (career high: #10) Flavia Pennetta of Italy (residence: Verbier, Switzerland), defeated the 2013 Katowice and Palermo champion, 32 year old #47 (career high: #13) Roberta Vinci from Taranto, Italy, 7-6(4), 6-2 (Roberta is shown during the match, Flavia is shown holding the hardware afterward).

    Flavia's prize is $3,300,000; Roberta's prize is $1,600,000.

    At the award ceremony, Flavia announced that she would retire from pro tennis at the end of this season.

    Flavia said: "It's a dream come true. When I was young, I was always thinking to be No.1 and win a Grand Slam. I also wanted to win Rome, but a Grand Slam is maybe a little better! But it's a dream come true. It's also nice to play with a friend of mine. Roberta played unbelievable. She had an incredible week... There's one more thing I'd like to say - it's the way I would like to say goodbye to tennis." WTA story

    Roberta said: "It's tough to play against a player you've known for a long time, but I tried to do my best. Flavia just played unbelievable today. It was a great match, and I have to just say congratulations to her."

    Flavia now leads Roberta 6-4 in career matches. Their previous meeting was in 2013 on the same Deco-Turf hardcourts in the quarterfinals of the US Open, when Flavia defeated Roberta 6-4, 6-1.

    Both ladies were playing in their first Grand Slam singles final. Flavia is now 11-14 in WTA singles finals; she has a 24-15 singles match record this season. Roberta is now 9-4 in WTA singles finals. Her singles match record in 2015 is 27-21.

It was kind of little bit difficult I think going from shade to the sun. It was so quickly. Yeah, it was very weird, but it was same for both of us. I think with the match goes on it was better and better to get used to these conditions. I felt good on the court, so that's important." postmatch interview

And would have been pretty disappointed if I ended up losing that first set given how well I had played the start of the set. Kind of lost my way early in that second set, and she kind of got control of the match again. For the changeover for the third I just kind of sat there and told myself to calm down and really talk about what was going on and focus on my service games. I was able to come out and play really well start of the third, and that obviously led to playing well again." postmatch interview

    Serena said: "[Venus is] the toughest player I ever played in my life, and the best person I know. So it's going against your best friend and going against, for me, the greatest competitor in women's tennis." ESPN story

    Venus said: "I thought I played pretty well tonight and served well. Just tried to play aggressively. That's always how I want to play. [At the net afterward] I just told her I was really happy for her..." postmatch interview

n2 s2 Simona Halep ROU d n20 s20 Victoria Azarenka BLR 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 Wed

Simona and Vika driving forehand and backhand

    Simona said: "It was an amazing match. [Victoria] played fantastic. But in the first set I played my best tennis, and I knew that I have the game to win the match.
    "But I know also that she's very strong and she doesn't give up during the matches. So after first set I did a step behind the baseline and wasn't good. She was dominating me in the second set, and I was running well but no power to hit from very far from the court.
    "The rain delay [at 1-2 in the 3rd set] was perfect for me. [Smiling.] It was unbelievable that I had another chance. So I said in the gym with my coach, I spoke and I said that I have another chance. So I have to go just to do everything I did in first set and to get this one, because it's made for me." postmatch interview

    Vika said: "I think I played well. I believe I could have played better. I did really fight really hard, and I was trying to find solutions. [Simona] played really well today. I was a little bit surprised by the pace of her ball, to be honest... I didn't expect an easy match or that she was going to give me something away. Obviously she didn't." postmatch interview

*n26 s26 Flavia Pennetta ITA d n5 s5 Petra Kvitova CZE 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 Wed

Petra and Flavia driving forehands

    Flavia said: "I think we both play very well. It was a good fight. In the end I play a little bit better. Physically I was better than her in the last set, so that was the difference, for sure." postmatch interview

    Petra said: "I left everything what I could today... and [Flavia] didn't miss at all. She was very consistent player. She moves very well, and it was tough to have any winners... [Flavia is a] very nice person and I like her. [After match point] I just wished her best of luck. She really deserved to win today." postmatch interview

*n47 Roberta Vinci ITA d n39 Kristina Mladenovic FRA 6-3, 5-7, 6-4 Tue

Kristina driving a forehand, and Roberta running one down

    Roberta said: "It was a tough match, of course, quarterfinal. At the beginning I started to play good, much better than her, and then I won the first set. Then 2-1 for me and break... she's starting to play much better than the first set. But I think at the end, 3-All in the third set, long, long game, advantage for her, advantage for me, double fault, ace, everything, and when I won that game probably she's going a little bit down or upset. But of course it's my [first Grand Slam] semifinal in my career, so I'm really happy." postmatch interview

    Kristina said: "Even today if I lost, it was quite a great and big battle out there with Roberta... Obviously she has much more experience than I do in such a big stages... I just gave it all out there. I really tried to fight till the very last second I could... She was just a bit tougher, better today." postmatch interview

Serena following a forehand, Roberta launching one on the run, and after match point

    Roberta said: "For me it's an amazing moment. It's incredible. I have so many things in my mind right now! It was an incredible match. I lost the first set, but I still tried to stay aggressive. In the end I was serving and it felt impossible, but I tried to stay focused and not think about the match or Serena's incredible play. It's the best moment of my life." WTA story - postmatch interview

    Serena said: "I thought [Roberta] played the best tennis in her career. She's 33 and she's going for it at a late age. So that's good for her to keep going for it and playing so well. Actually, I guess it's inspiring. But I think she played literally out of her mind. I don't think I played that bad. I made more unforced errors than I normally would make, but I think she just played really well." postmatch interview

*n26 s26 Flavia Pennetta ITA d n2 s2 Simona Halep ROU 6-1, 6-3 Fri

Flavia and Simona driving backhands, and Flavia after match point

    Flavia said: "I just tried to play every match the best I could from the first one here. I was trying not to think too much about the draw and everything else and just focus on what I had to do when I got on the court, match by match. And here I am in the final. I'm really, really happy." WTA story - postmatch interview

    Simona said: "[Flavia] play really well. She was strong. She was solid today. Actually, I didn't play my best, but she deserved to win. She was better than me today. She had more energy. I can say she was better emotional than me. So I accept, and I'm looking forward for the next tournament." postmatch interview
