“The crowd was against me,” said Giorgi on the match against Alize Cornet

Good first round for Camila Giorgi, who on Philippe Chatrier, in the debut match of the Roland Garros 2023, surpasses the home player Alize Cornet, number 59 in the WTA ranking. The Marches appeared from the first points in control of the match, dominating the game aggressively.

The Italian does not shine in the service, but the Frenchwoman does worse, who had a very fluctuating performance in the service with six double faults, losing points in the crucial moments. Although with a few minutes of amnesia, the former Canada Open champion managed to bring home a match that was not at all obvious.

Thw Italian number one told: “I’m gradually getting back into shape. The problem doesn’t go away overnight, so it’s a long process, but it’s okay, we’re working on it and my team is taking care of it. But I can say that he is improving.” Giorgi, whose best finish in the French Open is a round of 16 finish last year, will face Jessica Pedula, who outlasted Danielle Collins, in an all-American derby.
