Giorgi went on to reach the fourth round of the 2012 Wimbledon Championships in just her second appearance at the tournament. After her successful run at the championships, she made her top-100 debut in the WTA rankings. The following year, she followed it up with a third-round run at the Wimbledon Championships, and made her second Grand Slam fourth round at the US Open. She reached her first Grand Slam quarterfinal at the 2018 Wimbledon Championships, six years after her Wimbledon breakout. Giorgi reached her first WTA final in 2014 at the Katowice Open, and then won her first title at the 2015 Topshelf Open. She reached her best singles ranking of world No. 26 in October 2018.

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 most notable 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.

Personal lifeEdit

Giorgi was born in Macerata, Italy, to Sergio, an Argentinian of Italian descent, and an Italian mother. According to a number of newspaper reports, she is Jewish.[4][5][6][7] However, according to The Jerusalem Post, these reports have not been confirmed.[8] Giorgi considered emigrating to Israel in 2012, after her father opened negotiations with the Israel Tennis Association over the financial terms for her immigration.[9] Her mother, Claudia Gabriella Fullone, is a fashion designer who designs different dresses for every match.[10][11] Both moved to Italy from La Plata, Argentina.[10] Sergio Giorgi was drafted in Argentina in 1982, and fought in the Falklands War against the British; he now coaches Camila full-time.[12] As of September 2013, the Giorgi family was based in the Italian city of Pisa.[11]

Camila is one of four children. Her older brother Leandro is studying to be an actor, and younger brother Amadeus is a footballer, who currently plays for Serie D club A.C.D. Campodarsego.[11] She had a sister named Antonela who died in a car accident in Paris.[13]

CareerEdit

Junior careerEdit

Following an initial interest in artistic gymnastics, Giorgi decided to devote herself to tennis after assisting in her brother's training, when she was five years old. She was subjected to hard training by her father, Sergio. Two years later, 1976 French Open champion Adriano Panatta said of her: "It's the first time I play a girl who plays like Andre Agassi."[11] In 2000, she was spotted by tennis coach Nick Bollettieri, who subsequently offered her seven months of training (previously offered only to Maria Sharapova).[11]

In November 2005, she reached the final of the Nike Junior Tour, but was defeated by Slovakia's Zuzana Luknarová. Giorgi reached the final at the Sey Development Cup in the Czech Republic, and the round of 16 at the Astrid Bowl in Belgium.

2006–10: Early professional yearsEdit

Giorgi started with $10k tournaments, and obtained her first significant results reaching two semifinals in Baku and Jakarta. At the end of the season, she took part in her first $25k tournament. She closed 2006 with ten wins and seven losses, and as the 944th in the WTA rankings.

She obtained her best results in 2007 in September at Limoges in France, reaching the quarterfinals in a $10k tournament; then in $25k tournaments that she played at the end of the season, in December, in Lagos, Nigeria, where she reached the quarterfinals.

Giorgi started 2008 playing several tournaments in France, where she lived with her family. In May, she played for the first time qualifying for a major tournament circuit, thanks to a wildcard obtained at the Italian Open. She lost to Jill Craybas, No. 66 in the world, in a third set tie-breaker. She also played in the first round of the main draw in Rome-Tevere Remo (25k), Contrexéville (50k), and Rimini (75k).

She achieved her first important results in April, when she qualified for and reached the quarterfinals of two $25k tournaments. After some successes in tournaments in France, Giorgi won her first ITF tournament in August, in Katowice (25k), starting again from qualifying and defeating players such as Barbora Záhlavová-Strýcová (ranked No. 105) and, in the final, Ksenia Pervak (No. 135). After another quarterfinal in Nantes (50k), Giorgi ended with the victory in a $50k tournament in Toronto. With these two successes, she ended the year with 33 wins and 12 defeats, and reached No. 285 in the rankings.

The 2010 season began poorly for Giorgi, as she suffered three first-round losses in the first three months of the year. In June, she reached the final of a $25k tournament, in Bratislava. In the summer, she played several tournaments in America, where she went to live (in Miami, with her family), without remarkable results. In August, trying for the first time to qualify for a Grand Slam tournament – the US Open – she was defeated in the first round. However, in October, Camila won (losing only one set, in the first round) a $25k tournament in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

In June, at Wimbledon, Giorgi passed the qualifiers and reached her first appearance in a major tournament, but she lost in the first round to eventual quarterfinalist Tsvetana Pironkova.

Giorgi uses a two-handed backhand and flat groundstrokes. Her tendency is to play near and inside the baseline. She is known to be one of the hardest hitters on the tour. Her service is powerful but can be inconsistent. Her preferred surfaces are the fast hard and grass courts.[79][83]

  • 2 In 2014, the Toray Pan Pacific Open was downgraded to a Premier event and replaced by the Wuhan Open.
  • 3 2006: WTA Ranking–944,
