Wozniacki does an Italian job on Giorgi

Camila Giorgi said too many mistakes led to her defeat against Caroline Wozniacki

Camila Giorgi admitted she made numerous mistakes as her Wimbledon campaign ended in a straight sets defeat to Caroline Wozniacki on Saturday.

The Italian was beaten 6-2, 6-2, on Court 1 against the Danish number five seed, and she was solely to blame for the defeat. She said: “Everything was going really bad today for me, I don’t think I had the rhythm from the start. and I just missed a lot, even in the especially important points, I wasn’t solid today. It wasn’t about how well she performed, it was about me, I made a lot of mistakes.”

Talking about the positives and negatives she took from her tournament at SW19, she said: “The positive is that I have many, many things to improve on my game. The negative is, of course, I lost today, but it’s okay. I mean, I go home, am going to take some days off and then start again.”

Having gone into the match with a good record against her, the Italian didn’t think Wozniacki raised her game to defeat her. “I think it’s like I said, it’s about me,” she said. “And today I was not solid. I was missing a lot, I wasn’t reactive with the legs, I was low. It was down to me, I played really bad today.

“When you miss after two balls, you can’t say if she plays better or not, it’s that I wasn’t solid. I was missing a lot, the serve. The same from behind, it was the same. When I was going to the net, I didn’t close the points.”

Wozniacki said: “It was nice to win this one. You never really feel comfortable against a player like her. She hits the ball as hard as she can, thankfully for me, it wasn’t really going in that much. I also kept serving well and I returned well, which was a big help for myself today.
