While Serena Williams wasn’t in the talkative mood, Roberta Vinci was on cloud nine after her stunning win over the World No. 1 today in the US Open semifinals.
The 32-year-old Italian beat Serena 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 in one of the great upsets in the Open Era and her biggest career win, sending the 43rd-ranked Vinci to her first Grand Slam final.
She then spoke to ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi apologizing as the American crowd wanted Serena, but she certainly won over a few fans with this heart-warming interview.
