Well, seeing how Dafne and Patricia got their own threads, here's one for the lovely Flavia Pennetta
Thanks Freya for suggesting this one
I really like Flavia (or Flaaf, as I like to call her
) She's a lovely girl and I think she makes a sweet couple with our dear Carlos.
Also, she's one rocking ragazza on the tenniscourts!!
