Giorgi will play the final in Canada against Karolina Pliskova

The Italian Camila Giorgi defeated the American Pegula, in three sets, 6-3, 3-6 and 6-1. This is her first final in a WTA 1,000.


Camila Giorgi secured her presence for the first time in the final of a WTA 1,000 this Saturday by beating Jessica Pegula this Saturday in the Montreal tournament (Canada), which will allow her to contest the title against Karolina Pliskova who defeated Aryna Sabalenka in the other semifinal.

The Italian Giorgi, the 71st in the world, defeated the American Pegula (30), in three sets, 6-3, 3-6 and 6-1. To reach the semifinals, Giorgi had to beat three players ranked among the top 25 in the world in Montreal: Elise Mertens, Petra Kvitoa and Coco Gauff.

After his victory, Giorgi expressed his joy because, he said, it had been "a great match" despite the fact that in the second set "maybe I did not execute my game". Giorgi acknowledged that he lost "a bit of rhythm", but recovered and made an "incredible" third set. Until today, Pegula had won all three games in which she had faced Giorgi.

Giorgi's rival in Sunday's final of the Canadian Open will be Czech Pliskova, number 6 in the WTA ranking, which this Saturday surpassed world number 3, Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka.
