Camila Giorgi, Italian Tennis Player: Bio, Age & Must-See Details

Camila Giorgi, Italian Tennis Player: Bio, Age & Must-See Details

The Italian star is enjoying her best ever Championships at the All England Club and is targeting a first Slam triumph.

Camila Giorgi is one of the rising tennis stars and has put together a strong showing in the 2018 Wimbeldon tournament. 

Camila giorgi born in Macerata in 1991, the Italian has Argentinian parents and is one of four children.

Trained by her dad Sergio, she has played tennis since the age of five and was spotted in 2000 by Maria Sharapova’s former tutor Nick Bollettieri.

Six years later Giorgi turned pro and began competing in WTA events, reaching two semifinals in Baku and Jakarta during her first season.

At Slams, her career best until this year has been a fourth round US Open finish in 2013.

A powerful hitter, Giorgi likes to take risks on the court and is one of the most promising young stars on the Tour.

Her highest ranking has been 30, which was in July 2015, but she is currently 52 in the world.

 

 

Germany Vs Sweden FIFA world cup 2018

Germany Vs Sweden FIFA world cup 2018

Get ready count down starts

The second round of matches is underway as Germany take on Sweden in Group F. The much-fancied Germans were stunned in their opening game, going down 1-0 to Mexico, so a win against the Swedes is vital if they are to qualify from the group stages.

Sweden got their campaign up and running with a 1-0 win over South Korea. And a win for Janne Andersson’s side could see reigning world champions Germany exit the World Cup after the first round for the first time in 80 years.

There’s been significant debate about the role of Marco Reus and whether he should be starting for Germany. Reus came on in the 60th minute against Mexico and Germany’s attack was notably better once he got involved.

But Reus has suffered significant injuries the past few seasons, none bigger than a knee injury that caused him to miss more than half of last season with Dortmund.
“I really have no say in this. All I can do is make is as hard as possible for them to do without me,” Reus said. “I try and give my all in training, offer myself and do hope of course I’ll be picked in order to help Germany get out of the group.”

Prediction

Germany will be raring to get over their surprise 1-0 defeat they suffered against Mexico in their opening Group F game. Hirving Lozano scored the only goal of the game which had the German players scratching their heads and gazing at one-another with confused looks.

In their first game Sweden strolled past South Korea, Andreas Granqvist scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot. South Korea failed to register a single shot on target and will certainly be tested against a Germany attacking force with a point to prove.

French Open 2018 live updates

Rafael Nadal beats Maximilian Marterer in last 16

Ten-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal moved into the 2018 quarter-finals with a 6-3 6-2 7-6 (7-4) victory over Germany’s Maximilian Marterer.

Nadal, 32, lost his opening service game and trailed 2-0 in the first set in Paris before recovering well.

He broke Marterer’s serve early in the second set and fought back from 3-1 down in the third for a straight-set win against the unseeded 22-year-old.

The Spaniard will play 11th seed 25, in the last eight.

The Argentine recovered from two sets down to beat South African sixth seed Kevin Anderson 1-6 2-6 7-5 7-6 (7-0) 6-2 to move into the second Grand Slam quarter-final of his career – and first at Roland Garros.

His compatriot Juan Martin del Potroalso moved into the last eight with a 6-4 6-4 6-4 win over American ninth seed John Isner.

The world number one has won 37 consecutive sets in the tournament, though he needed a tie-break in the third set to secure Monday’s win over world number 70 Marterer.

Nadal, who celebrated his birthday on Sunday, is now third on the all-time list for most match wins at Grand Slams, moving clear of Jimmy Connors with his 234th.

Nadal said I don’t feel old, but I am 32, and I have been here since 2003, so it’s a long way, a lot of years.

When you’re not as strong or you’re not as tall as Anderson, you can still win the match. I think people like me more, as well, for that, because they were supporting me.

They wanted me to remain in the game and the fact he was twice as tall as me was a reason for me to try and remain. But you can have a very good serve whether you’re tall or small. That didn’t have anything to do with it.

Nadal, who has won all his five previous meetings with Schwartzman, said of the Argentine: “It’s always good to see him in the quarter-final because he’s a good friend, a good person.
