From the Canadian Open victory to the Covid-19 controversy, to a bizarre retirement as Camila Giorgi suddenly ends her career

It seems that Camila Giorgi has retired from tennis in a way that fits very well with the career of the 32-year-old Italian, as bizarre as she currently shows no indication on social media of this move announce, as she becomes the latest to see what could happen. ‘have been.

Giorgi won her first ITF title in 2009 and made her Grand Slam debut in 2011 at Wimbledon. It was a very gradual progression for the Italian as she reached the fourth round the following year and made a top 100 debut. This was followed by further success at Wimbledon and in fact the US Open. Her first Grand Slam quarterfinal appearance came at SW19 in 2018 and a few years later she saw her first major title success at the 2021 Canadian Open.

She defeated Karolina Pliskova in the final in a real breakout moment for the former world number 26. But same story as her first Wimbledon exploits, there was a long time between a potential breakthrough and its follow-up, and amid controversy she never really backed it up.

Covid controversy, Instagram following and fading

While she fell down the rankings, it wasn’t the only problem Giorgi encountered when Italian media reported at the 2023 Australian Open that she had received a fake COVID-19 vaccine certificate at a time when entering countries still requires this in some cases always desperately needed. document. This landed her in some serious hot water, with the doctor naming Daniela Grillone Giorgi as one of the people who came to her looking for fake certificates. Although Giorgi did not admit this, she said that she received one of her vaccinations through this doctor who had been accused of administering fake serums.

Camila Giorgi has been somewhat forgotten now that her retirement has been announced not by her, but by the ITF.

Camila Giorgi has been somewhat forgotten now that her retirement has been announced not by her, but by the ITF.

She won her fourth WTA tour title at the 2023 Merida Open in Mexico, defeating Rebecca Peterson in the final, but slipped into the mid-top 100 by the time her retirement was announced. But not by her, as was confirmed on an ITF list on Wednesday, May 8. Her last match was a towel fight against Iga Swiatek 6-1, 6-1, after being out of shape for a while. Whether this is a mistake or whether she will come out with an explanation remains to be seen. But it does ensure that she reaches the top and suddenly disappears with her tennis career.

Perhaps in some ways she was also best known for her bikini photos than for her court tennis with the Italian who in some ways followed a similar route to Genie Bouchard. With 725,000 Instagram followers, she is known to the general public more for her perceived good looks than her results, with many sensational tabloid articles about her making waves in this photo. Her social media, aside from a story about herself in the mirror on Tuesday, remains vacant in terms of any form of retirement.

She also did not delete her biography, which reads as a professional tennis player. But given that the ITF has been informed and she has not been entered at Roland Garros, it is very likely that this is not a mistake on the Italian side. A career with highs, but also many lows and a bizarre way to end it.

Camila Giorgi is now listed as officially retired on the ITIA website, date of retirement: May 7. Her last match was against Swiatek in Miami, she did not participate in Roland Garros
