Camila Giorgi was unable to undertake the path hoped for at the Italian Open 2021, and she was defeated in the first match against the Spanish Sara Sorribes Tormo in almost four hours of match, which ended with the final score of 7-6 6-7 7-5 in favor of the Spanish tennis player.
Camila, who has never achieved very positive results in Rome, will take part in the WTA 250 event of the Parma Open in a few hours, where she will first of all meet the American Christina McHale.
Giorgi defends her father after Rome
In an interview published by the magazine Il Tennis Italiano, the 29-year-old from Marche returned to talk about the bizarre episode that took place a few days ago in Rome, when the chair judge of the match against Sorribes Tormo invited security to keep an eye on her father Sergio, considered even dangerous.
She said: "I would have liked to have been able to clarify things after Rome. In my opinion the circus started all from the chair judge, then the journalists started to slander me and my father. They said he was angry, but he wasn't and the words used against him were exaggerated.
He created a player from scratch and brought her into the top thirty: for that alone he deserves respect. I do not tolerate defamation made by a particular journalist who knows nothing about my private life. He is not a master father and I can do whatever I want with my life.
I repeat, it is intolerable if they take it out on him and then nobody comes to speak to us in person." Finally, Giorgi commented on her latest performances on the WTA Tour: "This year I did a very good preparation, but then I got hurt in Australia and I caught the coronavirus in the United States.
I was fine with it anyway, because I slept for eight days as if I had a normal fever. In Rome I had three days to prepare and I played well. Now this week and in general for the rest of the year my goal is to express my tennis and thus find stability."
