Indian Wells, Giorgi eliminates Poulter in the right group

The Italian leaves five games to the champion from San Diego and wins 6-3 and 6-2. In the second round, you will find the Czech Noskova

Good, indeed, very good, the first for Camila Giorgi, who leaves the court smiling in the desert of Indian Wells, California, after the elimination of British world No. 27 Katie Poulter. The Marche tennis player took the bare minimum to win 6-3, 6-2 in an hour and 18 minutes, displaying explosive and disarming tennis against the new San Diego champion, who may have been worn out last week. For Camila, this is a huge victory, not only because of the quality of tennis she offers: she is back to crack the top 30 for the first time since 2023, and more specifically from the season on green where she beat Ons Jabeur at the Eastbourne Championships. Czech Linda Noskova, n.29 WTA, will be waiting for her in the next round.


Camilla was immediately proactive in responding and in the second game, at the first opportunity, she broke for 2-0. The pace was extremely high in the Italian's half, leaving her just one ball away from 3-0, however, the situation was reversed just as quickly with a backhand error and a nasty double fault setting the Briton back. On the road. Having given her the counter in the fourth game, Poulter had the balance ball but it was the serve that betrayed her again, so two double faults returned the advantage to Giorgi, who, aware of what had happened previously, did not hesitate to fly to 4-1 . Having regained continuity and confidence in serving, the girl from Marche returned to set the pace and in the ninth game, with a serving winner, she won the partial 6-3, in 40 minutes.

When the Camilla is turbocharged, as we know, it is difficult to keep up with: it completely takes time away from its opponents and dominates rallies with winners from the baseline. Basically, what happened in the second set today. For a player from the Marche region, two periods are played in a row (in the first and third game), while Poulter appears in great difficulty, almost helpless in the face of her opponent's explosive tennis. Camilla held on tightly until 5-2, when her serve faltered again, giving the British player two break points. Therefore, the Italian tennis player is called upon to defend what she previously achieved and, without trembling, score three consecutive points, obtaining match point. The action again ends with a winning and convincing serve. The first was good in every sense of the word.
