NEW YORK — Flavia Pennetta arrived back at Arthur Ashe Stadium and had one question: “Where is it?”
She couldn’t wait to see the most recent addition to the photos of past champions displayed at the U.S. Open. It’s been almost one year since Pennetta affixed her name to that list, yet as she returned to Flushing Meadows on Friday, that moment felt much longer ago than 12 months.
