WTA Sunday Titlists: Forza Flavia, Schiavs Fails

Posted by gauloises1 on July 19, 2009

Flavia Pennetta d. Sara Errani 61 62

Flavia cruised over fellow Italian and defending champion Sara Errani to win her first ever title on home soil. And looked gorgeous. That’s really all there is to say. Go girl.

Sybille Bammer d. Francesca Schiavone 76(4) 62


Quite the day today in Prague. First of all, the two finalists had to see off their semi-final opponents in held-over matches from yesterday.


Which Bammer did in fine style, taking out Benesova (the remaining Czech hope) 60 75. Schiavone had a tougher time with Bacsinzsky, eventually prevailing 62 46 75. Whether that had much of an impact on her final performance I’m not sure, but it was a straight-sets win for Bammer for her first WTA title since A.D. 47. And then she brought her little daughter on again. Bless.

Oh, and the Bondarenko sisters won. So expect a celebratory blog update on their boyfriends and the health of their dogs some time in the next few hours.

  1. i am broken..poor Francesca 😦 I fell in love with her this year in Rome….live, she’s an adorkable leonessa ! And she’s different from how she looks on pics, she’s probably the less photogenic woman in the world haha poor girl ! Anyway, why did they play the same day?
    (LOL, i am asking you when i should know it *blushes*)

    Oh at least i can be happy for Flavia ** Piccola Penna rocks 🙂

  2. Yes, the whole pic is amazing sweet and the main reason of it is Francesca 🙂
    I’m happy that you “love” her, as you said. I think that more people would love her if they only didn’t stop at judging the looks and thinking “Nah she’s not good for my list of fav-players”..
    But that’s one of the biggest problems of women in our society, so i’m not surprised by the comments that I read around the web.
