“I didn’t know that, but I know I’m a little bit old, like for tennis; for life I’m young.”
Flavia Pennetta is astounded to learn that she’s among the three oldest women still left in the women’s draw at the US Open.
But, well, actually we have a good experience, like Francesca last year, she won Roland Garros and she was 30, and this year final with 31. Na Li, she won Roland Garros and she’s 29, also. There is some player can growing up early and some player they need time, and I’m one of them.
What she really meant:
“Life begins after tennis.”
What she definitely didn’t:
“If I’m old before I’m 30, I wonder where middle age went?”
