Camila Giorgi sheds light on her condition after withdrawal with Pegula

It lasted just over half an hour in the second round of Roland Garros for Camila Giorgi. The Marche-based tennis player, after losing 6-2 in the first set, was forced to retire due to physical problems giving the victory to world number 3 Jessica Pegula. In the post-match, the Italian player wanted to clarify her condition.

“I am sorry because I was playing well, but the knee problem I had was going to affect all my tennis. On the one hand I’m happy because of what I was expressing technically, but on the other hand the fact that I was ending my tournament like this I certainly don’t like. The problem is with the meniscus and it’s necessary to stay with it for a while. I’m not going to have surgery, I prefer to treat it with rest,” the Marche tennis player admitted to the microphones of “Ubitennis.”

Next, Camila Giorgi dwelt on her upcoming events, “I will have some time to recover and I plan to play in Nottingham (June 12-18) on grass. On that surface I have always been comfortable and I am convinced that I can confirm myself at a high level.”
