Italian Pennetta storms into last 16


NEW YORK (Reuters) - Tenth seed Flavia Pennetta became the first woman into the fourth round of the U.S. Open after she trounced Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak 6-1 6-1 on Friday.

The Italian, a quarter-finalist last year, continued her hot streak of form as she reached the last 16 for the loss of just six games.

Wozniak had beaten 17th seed Amelie Mauresmo to reach the third round but was totally outplayed as the Italian raced to victory in just 52 minutes.

Pennetta will now play the winner of the all-Russian clash between seventh seed Vera Zvonareva and Elena Vesnina, the 31st seed.
