Camila Giorgi was born on December 30, 1991, in Macerata, Italy, to Claudia Gabriella Fullone and Sergio Giorgi. Her father is her full-time coach, while her mother is a fashion designer. She has an older brother named Leonardo, who is studying to become an actor, and a younger brother named Amadeus, who is a former professional footballer.

After making her first Grand Slam appearance at Wimbledon in 2011, she began to play more regularly on the WTA Tour in 2012. The highlight of that year was a run to the fourth round at Wimbledon, where she was stopped by the eventual runner-up, Agnieszka Radwanska.

The 2013 US Open saw Giorgi make another Grand Slam fourth round. This included a third-round triumph against Caroline Wozniacki. She lost to her compatriot Roberta Vinci in the fourth round.

Giorgi reached her first two WTA finals in 2014. These came at the Katowice Open in April and the Linz Open in October. Both finals ended in defeat to Alize Cornet and Karolina Pliskova, respectively, in two tight finals.

The Italian won her first WTA title in 2015 on the grass courts at the Libema Open. She achieved this by defeating Irina Falconi, Michaella Krajicek, Yaroslava Shvedova, Kiki Bertens, and Belinda Bencic. After a mixed couple of seasons, Giorgi had a strong 2018 season.

She claimed a second WTA title in Linz in October by easily defeating Ekaterina Alexandrova 6-3, 6-1 in the final. Giorgi had her best run at a Grand Slam at the 2018 Wimbledon. Victories against Anastasija Sevastova, Madison Brengle, Katerina Siniakova, and Ekaterina Makarova took her to a maiden Grand Slam quarterfinal.

She fought extremely well against Serena Williams but ultimately fell to a 6-3, 3-6, 4-6 loss. The biggest moment of Giorgi’s career came at the 2021 Canadian Open. She had a shock run to the title of the WTA 1000 event. This was achieved with triumphs against Elise Mertens, Nadia Podoroska, Petra Kvitova, Coco Gauff, Jessica Pegula, and Karolina Pliskova.

Giorgi won her fourth WTA title at the Merida Open in February 2023 by beating Rebecca Peterson in the final.
