“Camila will not be able to be with us in Glasgow.”

Absent from the courts for more than two months – her last match played was last August 31, when she was defeated in the second round of the US Open by Madison Keys in the third-set tie-break – Camila Giorgi must say goodbye to the Billie Jean King Cup. The most prestigious event for women’s national teams, scheduled from November 8 to 13, will not see the participation of the 30-year-old from Macerata, as confirmed by the mouth of the Azzurro captain Tathiana Garbin to the official FIT channels.

“Unfortunately, Camila, who played her last match last late August, has not been able to recover from her injury: she is very sorry but she will not be able to be with us in Glasgow. We decided not to replace her: the team will consist of the other four players summoned. We will face a difficult round: both Switzerland and Canada are competitive opponents, it will be a good challenge. Anyway, I am confident because I am convinced that my girls with the national team jersey manage to find additional resources and create that group strength that many times has allowed us to win unimaginable victories. We are ready,” said the former tennis player.
