Flavia Pennetta wins poorly attended Singapore Exhibition.

Flavia Pennetta got her new season off to a fine start by winning the Singapore Women’s Tennis Exhbition event on Sunday. The Italian, ranked 20th in the world, beat Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4 7-5 in the final, coming from 5-2 down in the second set to secure a straight-sets win.

In the third-place play-off, US Open champion Sam Stosur beat China’s Peng Shuai 2-6 6-4 6-4.

Organisers want to turn the exhibition event into a full WTA tournament, possibly as early as next year. However, their hopes of doing so have not been helped by a poor attendance over the past three days.
