The blue won in two sets, 7-5 6-3 in almost two hours of play. She now she will meet the winner of Flipkens-Tomova
Eastbourne weed is particularly good for Camila Giorgi. The blue qualified for the quarter-finals of Rothesay International, the WTA 500 with a prize pool of $ 797,900 and underway at Devonshire Park. The 30 year old from Macerata, n. 26th in the ranking and 12th seeded, fresh from the quarterfinals in Birmingham (the first of the season) and semifinalist in this tournament 12 months ago, he beat in the second round the former world number one and winner of Wimbledon, the Spanish Garbine Muguruza, 10th in the ranking and 5th in seeding: 7-5, 6-3 the final score in one hour and 52 minutes of play.
A victory obtained with great determination, it must be said. In fact, in both sets Camila has always found herself chasing with a break at a disadvantage but has always reacted: in the first set she avoided a very heavy 2-5, then re-entered the set and in the 12th game she broke the all-time serve. opponent, to win the fraction 7-5. In the second you instead placed a partial of 5 consecutive games to archive the 6-3 practice. It wasn’t just about determination, though: Camila is fine, she has always liked the grass as mentioned (she also made the quarter-finals at Wimbledon in 2018, then lost to Serena Williams) and physically always being more than place. In a landscape that certainly does not see great specialists on the surface, she can have a say about her, especially if she avoids the roller coaster in her game of hers that occasionally happens to her. This with Muguruza was a significant test for the blue: the Spaniard, of course, is clearly experiencing a crisis of results, but she had beaten her the last two times and is still an unpredictable player. Giorgi, in the quarters, will face the winner of Flipkens-Tomova.
