Maria Francesca Bentivoglio

I don't know if many of you remember this girl but I'm pretty sure Italy lost a good chance to have an Italian woman in the Top Ten

How do you feel when an Italian wins the US Open Junior at the age of 16 dropping only one set and being already ranked #78 WTA? That was in 1993, the year she reached the quarterfinals of Tier I Rome (beating Habsudova, Zvereva and Top 10 Novotna ) and Tier IV San Marino. Then she simply disappeared, she retired to live a simple life and to carry on with her studies. She became a gynaecologist as her dad and never played tennis as a pro again

To know more about her and to see some Youtube videos of her impressive run at the Foro Italico go here

Re: Maria Francesca Bentivoglio

#78 at only 16?
and in 2007 Giorgi(16 yo) is #740 and the father says she's the future #1

Poor girl it's a shame she retired so early

Re: Maria Francesca Bentivoglio

I saw her playing in Rome in 1993 against Zvereva, she was so talented...it is indeed a pity that she gave up tennis so quickly, I guess she could not keep up with the pressure...thanks for remembering her, Spiceboy
