Tennis star and lingerie model Camila Giorgi has celebrated her first WTA title for almost two years after storming to a three-set victory over Rebecca Peterson



Tennis star and lingerie model Camila Giorgi beamed while celebrating her surprise WTA title at the Merida Open in Mexico – her first for almost two years.



The 31-year-old Italian, who turned professional back in 2006, celebrated a long-awaited victory of 7-6, 1-6, 6-2 having dropped the second set to Swedish qualifier Rebecca Peterson.



The action lasted two hours and 23 minutes in the final of the inaugural tournament, with Giorgi beating three seeded players including No. 2 seed Sloane Stephens in the WTA 250 event.




Giorgi told fans: “I’m so happy to be here, especially my first time in Mexico. What a surprise. This atmosphere — was an amazing week. What a final we did Rebecca.”

The No. 46 hadn’t tasted glory on the tour since the Canadian Open back in August of 2021, now winning four of her 10 career WTA finals.
