Is it just me, or is Flavia Pennetta gonna become a huge tennis player??

I mena, semis in India, taking a set off Lindsay, beating clarissa, a clay court specialist in Rome 6-0 in the third, and now beating raymond and very probably will beat Mandula to make 4th round of RG!!

C'mon Flavia!!

Maybe it's just because we're both Italian and we NEED some home player to support... but, yes, I'm really happy for her. I saw her on TV for the first time when she played the FED Cup and more or less took the team to the second round all by herself (won her two singles and the doubles). The good thing about her is that she's not only technically and physically solid, but also she seems to have the right mentality, she can stay focused, she knows how to fight on court... Let's give her some time to build some experience. And... I'm already keeping my fingers crossed for her upcoming match with Mandula, she does have a great opportunity to make it to the round of 16 at her first serious GS

I've been following her for a little while and finally got to see her in Miami when she took that set off Davenport. She looks very fit and I'm sure she can be top 20 or 15 if she could add some power. I hope she keeps going. I had her making the 3rd round but with Myskina out of the way, she could do as well as the quarters here.

Well, yeah, she seems pretty good. Italy finally has a stable of decent players!

I think she'll beat mandula .... but Petra's in with a shot, no doubt.

I`ve never seen her play but I have noticed her great results lately.
How old is Flavia? I think she is able to become the successor of Silvia Farina-Elia. It would be great for Italy!

Well the problem was she doesn't speak English so her manager had to translate everythinh

Well I asked her the classical things .. when did you start playing tennis, who were you're idols, How did it feel to play on Il Centro with all those Italians chearing at you ...

The whole interview will be on sanexheroes soon and the pictures are on http://users.pandora.be/fleemke

For those who don't know her .. it's the girl getting make-up on her and the right one at the players party with the black jacket en the long brown hair
