Camila Giorgi is said to be untraceable due to unsuccessful contact by WTA prior to sudden retirement

Italian tennis player Camila Giorgi has reportedly retired from the sport, also in a rather mysterious manner, with an alleged disappearance the latest mystery. The 32-year-old recently played at the Miami Open in March, where her journey came to an end when she lost in the round of 64 to current world number one Iga Swiatek by a score of 6-1, 6-1.
Interestingly, the authorities subsequently lost contact with Giorgi and she was untraceable for a very long period of time, which also sparked rumors about her safety. However, according to the latest report, she has retired after her name appeared on the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) list of retired players. The list noted that the Macerata-born star retired two days ago, on May 7.
It is not clear what the main reason behind her decision was as it was clear that she was also not dealing with an injury before quitting. An online report states that the player is currently outside Italy and that her decision to retire is likely due to a false certification of the Covid-19 vaccination and the potential problems associated with it. The WTA is believed to have tried to contact her in vain, according to Corriere della Sera, and she is believed to have disconnected all her phones. So the plot thickens in terms of her strange disappearance, not just from tennis, but seemingly from the world.

Giorgi ended her career with four WTA titles. Her biggest victory came in 2021 when she won the WTA 1000 event – ​​​​the Canadian Open – where she defeated Czech Karolína Pliskova in straight sets with a score of 6-3, 7-5. In Grand Slams, her best performance came at Wimbledon in 2018 when she was defeated by former world number one Serena Williams with a score of 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.
