agreed, but I think light balls and relatively fast courts helped Camila quite a bit too...remember that Roland Garros was sped up back in 2009 and aggressive players were doing very well there since

Re: Camila Giorgi Cheering Thread!!

Hey, I called it "a toss up" and said that Camila could win the match if she played well, and that Marino didn't out class Camila. I only hedged my bets because it was on red clay; otherwise, I would have gone solidly for Camila rather than call it a toss up. But the result doesn't surprise me.

Also, I've noticed at this level the girls have a hard time following up a tournament win like this. Camila won Dothan and then did little in her next two tournaments. The only player I've seen play consistently at a high level on the US portion of the ITF events was Oprandi in the fall of 2011. She won about three tournaments and made the finals of a couple more. Phenomenal effort. Based upon Marino's ranking, I thought she probably wouldn't be able to maintain the momentum since she's never been ranked inside the top 100. That tells me something about her consistency.

Re: Camila Giorgi Cheering Thread!!

Camila Giorgi def. Mariana Duque-Marino 6/3 6/4

Wow. I totally fall in love this morning with this young italian. She reminded me a lot Maria Kirilenko, and was wearing a great yellow/white skirt that fitted her perfectly. Ok, I stop slobbering and talk about the match. "Giorgious" was clearly the one who was dictating the points. She hit the ball very cleanly and did some superb volleys (with a great touch for the backhand-dropshot volley). Duque-Marino, supported by some members of the Colsanitas Team - including Carlos Salamanca (who lost yesterday against Marc Gicquel), could only defend and counter-punch. She was losing 3/6 *0/2 before the italian started to make some (big) mistakes. It seems to be the problem of her game so far : when she's on, she can beat many players, but she has no plan B. The second set became very tight, and the last game at *5/4 was epic. Duque-Marino had some break points, but missed some return of serves. She saved three match points but the fourth one was the deciding one after another return of serve on 2nd serve out by the colombian.

The same here Camila needs all the respect of this world, she could simply give up, but she didn't. This explains the bad results after Wimbledon, the few tournaments played... poor Camila, and poor family All the best wishes.

The interview is really interesting. Her father has been always described in a very negative way, I am happy he seems a great person
