Forza Italia: @GiorgiCamilla Moves Forward to @CitiOpen Singles Final
Steve Fogleman in Washington
Camila Giorgi looks to win the third title of her career tomorrow after a 7-6, 6-1 victory over young American Caty McNally at the Citi Open in Washington earlier today. This is Giorgi’s first crack at a Washington final. The Italian won her latest title at the Linz Open in Austria in October of last year and has a record of 2-4 in WTA finals.
Giorgi’s run this week has been stellar. She knocked out a red-hot Sachia Vickery in straight sets, and a 3-set comebacker over Rebecca Petersen, followed up with straight set wins over Zarina Diyas and McNally today.
McNally had an impressive week in singles and the 17-year-old multiple junior grand slam champion is set to play in the doubles final later this afternoon with fellow American Coco Gauff after she rests up from the semifinal loss.
