6-2 7-5 the score in favor of the Swiss tennis player.

End of the run. After easily beating, in the first two rounds of the Australian Open, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Anna Karolina Schmiedlova, Camila Giorgi has to surrender to Belinda Bencic, the Swiss tennis player number 10 in the WTA ranking, who prevails over the Azzurra in two sets (6-2 7-5 the score) after 1 hour and 41 minutes of play.

The athlete from Macerata paid dearly, above all, for a lackluster start to the match, marked by too many errors. In the second partial Camila fights on every ball managing to drag the set until the twelfth game, when her opponent closes the file earning the pass to the round of 16. Thus the last Italian representative in the women’s draw also exits the scene, with Giorgi failing to make an appointment with her 17th victory against a Top Ten player, not dispelling the taboo of the third round in Melbourne. For Belinda Bencic, on the other hand, it is the second eighth in Australia of her career.
