Pennetta Reaches U.S. Open Quarterfinals With Win Over Dellacqua

Sept. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Italian Flavia Pennetta advanced to the U.S. Open quarterfinals, beating Casey Dellacqua of Australia 7-5, 6-2 today in Flushing, New York.

Pennetta, a semifinalist in 2013 and this year’s No. 11 seed, won 79 percent of her first serve points in the one-hour, 19-minute match. Dellacqua hit 35 unforced errors, almost double Pennetta’s 18.

“It was really tough to play today, I was really nervous from the beginning,” Pennetta said in a courtside interview. “But I was trying to play my tennis and today my serve was working a little better.”

Later today at the tennis season’s final Grand Slam, top seeds Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams take the court for their fourth-round matches. The final American left in either draw, Williams is looking to become the first woman since Chris Evert in 1975-78 to win three straight U.S. Open titles.
