Despite losing in two sets to French Open Champion Jelena Ostapenko, Camila Giorgi has been one of the early stars of this year’s Wimbledon, for both good reasons and bad.
The good, obviously, is that she’s gorgeous. The bad, however, is that she and her father may be cheaters.
While Ostapenko, 20, beat Giorgi 7-5, 7-5 in one hour and 21 minutes, she felt her opponent was exhibiting ‘unsportsmanlike’ behavior, as she accused Giorgi’s father of coughing during her serves.
Camila Giorgi is q 29-year-old Italian professional tennis player. She is right-handed and plays with a two-handed backhand. Born in Macerata, Italy to an Argentinian father and an Italian mother, Giorgi started playing tennis at the age of five at a local club. After playing at junior level, she made her senior international tournament debut in 2006 at the International Tennis Federation circuit.
After winning her first title at the ITF tour in 2009, Giorgi made her WTA tour main draw debut at the 2011 Wimbledon Championships. Giorgi is known for her aggressive style of game and her powerful flat groundstrokes, and is considered to be one of the hardest hitters of the ball on the tour.
Her biggest professional wins have come at the 2013 US Open, 2014 BNP Paribas Open, and 2014 Aegon International, defeating former world no. 1 players Caroline Wozniacki, Maria Sharapova, and Victoria Azarenka, respectively.
