A year to remember: Flavia’s final fling

How to sum up Flavia Pennetta's 2015?
Flavia gets engaged, Flavia wins a Slam, Flavia retires.
Pennetta clearly doesn’t do things by halves. What a year for the Italian who first was swept off her feet by ATP star and future hubby Fabio Fognini, before shocking the tennis world by beating close friend Vinci to lift the US Open trophy, her first Grand Slam title.
The 33-year-old signed off in style with a first-ever appearance at the WTA Finals in Singapore. She’ll be missed.
