«I no longer think about the final of the US Open»

Roberta Vinci has made Italian tennis history in both singles and doubles.. The Taranto tennis player achieved the Career Grand Slam paired with Sara Errani, winning all four Majors between 2012 and 2014.

Vinci then gave life to a fantastic Italian derby with Flavia Pennetta in the last act of the 2015 US Open. Impossible to forget the semifinal that she beat Serena Williams, that year chasing the Grand Slam. The Italian has won 10 titles on the WTA Tour and reached the seventh position in her ranking during her career.

On the occasion of his fortieth birthday, Vinci gave an extremely interesting interview to the Il Tempo newspaper.

The 40 years of Roberta Vinci: «I have nothing to reproach myself with»

“I have lived 40 years well. The balance is positive, I can not complain about anything.

In recent years I have managed to get a lot of personal satisfaction, having my family close. We can say that it is great. I have nothing to reproach myself or want more than what I had. When I was little, I began to reap my first successes in Puglia.

My coaches thought that I could become a real player and from then on it was a crescendo. My only regret from a tennis point of view is not being able to medal at the Olympics. Otherwise it had everything. Final with Flavia Pennetta at the US Open? These are sensations that are difficult even to explain, unique.

I never thought that I would be able to do all this: the final of a Grand Slam, be able to beat Serena. Hard to explain. One finally tries it and I’m not saying that miracles sometimes happen, although I think this was almost a miracle.

But if you believe it, eventually something brings you home. That time some things came together: luck, talent, Serena was more nervous than usual because she was two steps away from winning the Grand Slam. Everything aligned to allow me to play the final with Flavia.

Two Apulians who have made the trip of their lives, until then. I don’t think about that game anymore. I’m not one to worry. I can only say pity, but nothing more. Flavia was better than me. she deserved it. I probably arrived a little tired and less lucid. But together we made history. Alright.»
