Pénélope Julie "Diddie" Vlasto Serpieri (French pronunciation: ​; 8 August 1903 – 2 March 1985) was a female tennis player from France. She won the silver medal at the Paris Olympics in 1924 in women's singles, losing the final to Helen Wills Moody. Vlasto also won the version of the French national championships in 1924 that was open only to French nationals. She was a doubles partner of Suzanne Lenglen in many doubles tournaments during the early 1920s.

According to Wallis Myers of The Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mail, Vlasto was ranked in the world top ten in 1923 and 1926, reaching a career high of World No. 8 in those rankings in 1923.[1]

The World Hard Court Championships (WHCC), actually played on clay in Paris or Brussels, began in 1912 and were open to all nationalities. The results from that tournament are shown here for 1923. The Olympics replaced the WHCC in 1924, as the Olympics were held in Paris. Beginning in 1925, the French Championships were open to all nationalities, with the results shown here beginning with that year.
