3) The most unexpected ‘First All Italian Final’-

It was the first major final for both Flavia Pennetta and Roberta Vinci at the US Open. Pennetta became the oldest woman in the Open era to become a Grand Slam champion for the first time. The Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd had paid top dollar for tickets, in anticipation of seeing Williams have a shot at making history by winning a career slam in front of home crowd. Even the tickets were sold out before the men’s for the first time in history. The draw ended with an all Italian final, perhaps a disappointment to the American crowd, but it was a proud moment for Italy.
