Just married! Our lovely Flavia Pennetta and her long-time partner Fabio Fognini celebrated a marriage ceremony in the bride’s hometown of Ostuni, in the province of Brindisi, Italy.
The joyous event took place on Saturday, June 11, just as it had been announced in March, when they exchanged engagement vows in the groom’s hometown of Taggia.
The Italian tennis stars have not shared any impressions from their wedding on Twitter yet, but a dozen of photos have surfaced online, so we know that the ceremony was as beautiful as we had expected.
Women’s tennis players in attendance included Flavia’s former doubles partner Gisela Dulko, as well as fellow Italians Francesca Schiavone, Roberta Vinci and Sara Errani.
As you know if you’ve been following our WTA Players and their Love Partners section, Flavia and Fabio started dating in early 2014. I first hinted that they might be together after Flavia’s triumph at Indian Wells 2014, based on the WTA player’s Instagram photo where she’s lying in bed with Fabio and showing the V sign.
