Camila Giorgi won the first Billie Jean King Cup challenge between Italy and Slovakia

Promising start for the Italian team in the Billie Jean King Cup qualifiers: Camila Giorgi lived up to the predictions and beat Anna Karolina Schmiedlova decisively, bringing the Azzurre the first point in the confrontation with Slovakia.

The Macerata-born tennis player won with a comfortable 6-2, 6-3 in an hour and a quarter of play over the world number 96, never giving her opponent a chance: as many as 20 winners, 6 ace for a very determined Giorgi. The second match will see Italian number one Martina Trevisan face Viktoria Hruncakova, world number 127.
