Yesterday Fabio Fognini and Flavia Pennetta lived one of the most beautiful and intimate moments of their life. The most famous couple of the Italian Tennis, waiting for the wedding that will take place on June 11 in Ostuni, made an official promise of marriage on the town of Fabio, Taggia.

Asked when the friendship became love between her and Fabio, a few weeks ago Pennetta said: ‘Two years and a half ago. We did not expect it: from a friendship and funny relationship, that had been going on for years when we were both engaged, we found ourselves one day speaking the same way, but having different expressions and feelings. And one evening on the sofa we kissed. It was a strange kiss: it seemed like we have always known each other, like we had already kissed for all our life’.
If off-court is a beautiful moment for Fognini, the same cannot be said for his on-court performance: this year he played only four tournaments so far. As a matter of fact in Rio de Janeiro he had to retire because of an injury. He should return to compete in Monte Carlo, or maybe, like he seemed to express a few days ago, in Naples Challenger.
