Pennetta wins Bangkok Open
Defeating Chan Yung-Jan 6-1, 6-3 after a four-hour rain delay, Flavia Pennetta won the Bangkok Open today. This is a Tier III tournament, but Pennetta had to get through both Shahar Peer and Venus Williams to get to the final, making it a bit more than a Tier III win. Out with an injury and struggling to get back into form, the Bangkok win has to do wonders for Pennetta's confidence.
