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.

courbon Says:

Best post match interview ever…She is so funny and charming.

chris ford1 Says:

Very lovable, the win gave time to showcase another wonderful person and athlete in the sport. And the video was better than a transcript or you would have missed the hundreds of Italian hand gestures, the tone of voice and Vinci’s shifting facial expressions.

32. Flavia is 33.
Both may not have singles Slam wins, but have been champions in other singles events, Fed Cup, in Slam doubles. Two fine Vets with long illustrious careers and their perhaps career capstone event has the Finals to go. Both are worthy of this.

ron Says:

I wouldn’t want to play Serena next…..She’s gonna be PISSED!

RZ Says:

Some of the biggest upsets have come from people who said they thought they had no chance of winning. (Soderling beating Nadal at the French Open comes to mind). I guess when they feel they have nothing to lose, they come out swinging.
