SINGAPORE: Goodbye girl Flavia Pennetta kept her hopes of one last title alive on Tuesday when she beat Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska 7-6 (7/5), 6-4 at the WTA Finals in Singapore.
The 33-year-old Italian, who announced she will retire at the end of the season after winning her first Grand Slam at the US Open, played an aggressive cross-court game to neutralise the stubborn defensive skills of Radwanska.
