Some days ago, Camila Giorgi, the Italian tennis player daughter of Sergio Giorgi from La Plata, a combatant during the Falklands War, was shrouded in a halo of mystery since, at 32 years old and 116th in the ranking, she abruptly retired, without prior announcements. Investigated for tax problems and targeted for a case of falsification of documents linked to vaccination against Covid-19, different versions were released. Days later, she herself confirmed her retirement through social media and spoke of “inaccurate rumors.” However, another unclear chapter involves her.

Not only the tax authorities would be looking for Giorgi (she would be in the US), but also the owner of a residence in Calenzano, near Florence, where the former tennis player (26th in 2018 and winner of four titles) lived until recently. a few months, before his escape. “Not only did they leave without saying anything with six months of unpaid rent, but they They made half of our furniture disappear.

On the 7th of this month, the same day that the Italian Open began in Rome, Giorgi appeared as retired on the website of the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) and was removed from the anti-doping protocol in which all the professional players. There were no new posts on social media from her, she had last played in the Miami tournament (last March) and when the WTA looked for her for a comment, they found phones disconnected.

After his mysterious retirement announcement, La Gazzetta dello Sport had reported that the Guardia di Finanza was investigating Giorgi for “vacuums” in his fiscal responsibilities. And now this unusual news emerges. The story also has an incredible chapter, with an alleged exchange of messages between the owner of the residence and Sergio, the former athlete’s father.
