Camila Giorgi surrenders after half an hour in Paris

The Roland Garros match between Camila Giorgi and Jessica Pegula lasted just over half an hour. The Marche-based tennis player retired after losing (2-6) the first set against the world number 3 who had taken off immediately by breaking her serve twice in a row and thus taking a 4-0 lead.

What is now being staged is the 122nd edition of the French Open, one of the four tournaments that are part of the Grand Slam, the second in order of time after the Australian Open, which in 2023 was won by Serbia’s Novak Djokovic among the men and Belarus’ Aryna Sabalenka among the women.

At the men’s level, the Roland Garros roll of honor sees Rafa Nadal widely in the lead: the Spaniard, who was forced to forfeit for this edition, has won 14 times, the last of which was just last year, defeating Norway’s Casper Ruud in the final with a score of 6-3, 6-3, 6-0. At 6 wins is the legendary Swede Bjorn Borg.
