Raffaella Reggi (born 27 November 1965, in Faenza, Italy; Italian pronunciation: [raffaˈɛlla ˈredd͡ʒi]) is a former professional tennis player from Italy, known for her fiery on-court personality, expressiveness and gesticulations.

Career

As a junior, Reggi won the Orange Bowl 16 and under in 1981. She was a member of the Continental Players Cup Team in 1982.

Reggi won the mixed doubles title at the US Open in 1986, partnering Sergio Casal. She was a singles quarter-finalist at the French Open in 1987, and reached a career-high singles ranking of World No. 13 in 1988. One of the highlights of her career was winning the Italian Open in 1985.

In 1985 she became the first Italian woman to win the Italian Open since Annelies Ullstein-Bossi won in 1950. The two remain the only Italian women to reach the singles final of Italy's top tennis tournament since World War II.

Reggi finished her career with five singles titles and four doulbles titles. She was a member of the Italian Fed Cup team from 1982 through 1991 and the Italian Olympic Team in 1988 and 1992. She had career victories over Steffi Graf, Chris Evert, Evonne Goolagong, Jana Novotná, Hana Mandlíková, Manuela Maleeva, Nathalie Tauziat, Helena Suková, Claudia Kohde-Kilsch, Zina Garrison, and Jo Durie.
