Camila Giorgi withdraws in Cincinnati qualifiers

In the Cincinnati WTA 1000 qualifiers, bad news for Camila Giorgi: the 31-year-old from Marche, world number 51, in fact withdrew due to an unspecified physical problem at 4-6 6-4 3-0 in favor of her opponent, Canadian Rebecca Marino, number 103.

Italian tennis thus loses one of its protagonists in the prestigious tournament on Ohio’s cement but gains another: Elisabetta Cocciaretto, fresh from her entry into the world’s top 30, should have in turn made the qualifiers but was repechaged in the main draw, where she will face a noble decadent such as the American Sloane Stephens.

Two azzurre passed the first round of the qualifiers: Martina Trevisan cleared Taiwan veteran Su-Wei Hsieh with an eloquent 6-1 6-0 in less than an hour, while Jasmine Paolini beat a comeback 1-6 6-3 7-5 with her usual grit against Spain’s Rebeka Masarova.

Lucia Bronzetti, on the other hand, did not make it, beaten with a double 6-2 by Frenchwoman Diane Parry, and, in the men’s field, Matteo Arnaldi, who also surrendered to a Frenchman, Corentin Moutet, who defeated him in a comeback with a score of 4-6 6-0 6-2.
