PRAGUE, Czech Republic
Camila Giorgi quieted a packed Centre Court at the J&T Banka Prague Open on Monday, as the Italian scored an upset victory over top seed Karolina Pliskova, 7-6(6), 6-2, on the first day on main draw play.
Though Giorgi has seen her ranking slip to World No.99, the Italian often brings her best against the WTA elite, and scored her first win against Pliskova in four career meetings.
“I’m happy about my performance," Giorgi said. "I had some injuries with my elbow and back in the last few months, but now I feel good physically and am ready to show my best tennis again.
