The Marche woman is incisive in the key moments of the match

Good debut for Camila Giorgi in Indian Wells. The Italian player, in the first round, won over the 32-year-old Dutchwoman Arantxa Rus in two sets (6-3, 6-3 the match’s partials). Not an exciting performance for Camila Giorgi who, however, appeared very solid in key moments. “I am very happy, from the back I hit well,” the comment of the Italian herself in the post match.

Now for the Marche player a decidedly more demanding challenge with the U.S. Jessica Pegula, number 3 on the tournament’s scoreboard and one of the favorites to go all the way. The precedents are in favor of the U.S. who, in five direct challenges, has won four times.
