The former world No.26 Giorgi’s sudden and silent retirement from professional tennis sent shockwaves through the sports world, but the story took a dramatic turn with allegations of tax evasion, raising questions about the true motives behind her decision to quit tennis.

Shortly after these shocking reports, Giorgi finally officially announced retirement in a social media statement and also told her followers not to believe the stories they read in the media. The latest development comes from her legal team, asserting that the reason for her retirement was tiredness and is unrelated to any ongoing investigation by Italian authorities.

“Camila will return to Italy soon,” stated her lawyers Federico Marini and Cristian Carmelo Nicotra. They explained that her departure from the Calenzano residence is temporary, resulting from family disagreements and the need for a pause to reflect on life post-tennis. They emphasized that there is no intention to evade investigations or responsibilities, highlighting a history of transparency and cooperation when required.

Giorgi’s legal representatives clarified that her retirement was not influenced by the €465K she owed in unpaid taxes, stating that she had been planning to end her career for several months. They explained, “Since COVID, Camila was thinking of gradually slowing down, she had difficulty coping with the stress of competitive activity.”

The 32-year-old winner of four WTA titles played her last career match at the Miami Open in March, where she was defeated by top-ranked Iga Swiatek in the second round, with a score of 6-1 6-1. Her official retirement date is May 7, 2024, as indicated by the Retired Players list of the International Tennis Integrity Agency website. (source:
