Fabio Fognini and Flavia Pennetta were among the special guests to be interviewed on Rai 1 during Che Tempo Che Fa programme on Sunday.
They spoke about how their love story started. It was Pennetta who really wanted to date Fabio at first. 'He wasn't considering me! He always had such character,' Pennetta said laughing. She also admitted: 'I would have never thought that I would be married to Fabio, have a child.
Because we were just close friends for a long time.' Revealing the approach between each other, Fognini added: 'We were training in Barcelona. Our coaches were friends with each other, then we had the same physio, and one thing led to another and the nicest trophy is there, our son Federico.' 'It changed our life', Pennetta agreed.
'They can explain and speak about you, but when you hug your son it's amazing. It's our greatest gift.' ALSO READ: A Grand Slam finalist pulls out of French Open .
