Share This...

Flavia Pennetta got her revenge for last year’s quarterfinal loss to Angelique Kerber at the US Open. This time she managed to beat the German 6-1 6-2 in the semifinal of the ASB Classic in Auckland.

Pennetta will play China’s Zheng Jie in Saturday’s final. Zheng surprisingly beat Svetlana Kuznetsova in three sets 2-6, 6-3, 6-3.

The Italian will try to capture her ninth singles tour title. She was a runner-up Auckland’s in 2010. For Zheng, this could be the fourth title of her career.
