Camila Osorio is a Colombian professional tennis player who was born on December 22, 2001, in Cucuta, Colombia. After starting to play tennis at a young age, her talent soon became evident. This led her to swap her home country for the United States at the age of 11 in pursuit of a professional career.

This led to her enjoying success on the junior tour, including winning the US Open Girls title in 2019. She had, in fact, already made her WTA main draw debut even before that win at the Claro Open in her home country, Colombia, but it was not until 2020 that she tasted what victory on the professional level was like.

It came in her first-round match at the Prague Open and she comfortably saw off Grabher in straight sets. Come 2021 she was ready to make the next step up and make the switch to the WTA tour a permanent one. One particular result that propelled her up the rankings and, therefore, the pecking order was the Copa Colsanitas in Bogota.

After going on a stellar run all the way to the final, not dropping a set, she was up against fifth seed Zidansek in the final. The young Colombian saw off her experienced opposition after going the distance and claimed her first WTA crown.

This form was replicated a week later when she reached the semifinal of the MUSC Health Women’s Open, followed by the semi of the Serbia Open a week later. This was enough to earn her spots at the upcoming Grand Slams, including wins at her first Wimbledon appearance.

All these promising results helped her break into the world's Top 35 in April 2022 before maintaining this newfound height in 2023. Come 2024, the progress did not stop, with the Colombian racking up her second career WTA title back on home soil in Bogota after she beat top seed Marie Bouzkova in straight sets.
