She's the second Italian in the Open Era to win a major - Francesca Schiavone won the 2010 French Open.
Pennetta stormed out to a 4-0 second set lead and would eventually close the match out, 7-6(4), 6-2.
And then, it began - it wasn't just the first all-Italian Grand Slam final in the Open Era...
... it was also a final between the two oldest first-time Grand Slam finalists in the Open Era.
Pennetta and childhood friend Roberta Vinci posed for the traditional photo at net before the match.
And she wasn't the only star at the final - Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones were there too.
