Tro­phies stolen from home of for­mer U.S. Open run­ner-up

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

ROME — For­mer U.S. Open run­ner-up Roberta Vinci says her ten­nis tro­phies have been stolen.

Vinci writes on In­sta­gram, “Un­for­tu­nately, a few days ago a group of thieves en­tered my house in Taranto and stole valu­able ob­jects. ... in­clud­ing some ob­jects for which the eco­nomic value is not even com­pa­ra­ble to their emo­tional value to me: the tro­phies that I won over my ca­reer.’’

While Vinci did not spec­ify if the sil­ver plat­ter she was awarded for her run­ner-up fin­ish in the 2015 U.S. Open was among the pieces stolen, she posted a pic­ture of her­self hold­ing the plat­ter. Vinci lost to fel­low Italian Flavia Pen­netta in the fi­nal. The 37th-ranked Vinci has won 10 sin­gles ti­tles and 25 dou­bles ti­tles on the WTA Tour and also helped Italy to win four Fed Cup.
