Camila Giorgi was supposed to be the tennis player who would take over the future of Italian women's tennis. The old generation, made up of Francesca Schiavone, Flavia Pennetta, Roberta Vinci and Sara Errani, was the most successful and glorious in the history of tennis in the Bel Paese.
For technical skills, a few years ago, player from Macerata, seemed to be going to top-10. During her career, Camila won challenges against world-class players, such as Maria Sarapova, Viktoryja Azaranka and Caroline Wozniacki (all former number one in the world), the winner of the US Open 2015 Flavia Pennetta, and Dominika Cibulkova.
And yet, at almost twenty-six years, she wasn't able to make all the progress that everyone expected. In fact, she disappointed all the expectations, failing to bridge the gap with top-players. And above all, never succeeding in improving her extremely offensive game (beautiful to see, but extremely risky).
In her career, Giorgi won a tournament, on the grass of S'Hertogenbosch, in 2015, in five finals played.
Where is now all her potential? So far it has remained there. It has not been improved. Indeed, at the gritty level, maybe she lost something. A player with these weapons should try to manage the match as much as possible. Instead, Giorgi always falls into the same technical and tactical erroros (or horrors).
She is trained by his father Sergio Giorgi, who has not been able to develop all the fantastic potential of his daughter. For the coach it would be time to to a step back. To leave his daughter to a coach able to develop Camila's tennis.
After the defeat at the French Open against Oceane Dodin, in the first round, the Italian said: "I know very well what happens to me, you will see my tennis soon, I have clear ideas. I know my level and I know if I'm up and down It does not depend on tennis, but from other external issues, you will soon see. I'm coming back from physical problems, elbow, back."
We believe Camila can still prove all her real value. She still faces the best years of her career. But she must absolutely rely on a new coach.
