Camila Giorgi v Sonay Kartal Head to Head
Giorgi and Kartal have no previous history. They will clash for the first time on Tuesday.
Giorgi Makes Second Week of Roland Garros
In her ninth main draw appearance, Camila Giorgi managed to crack the code and reached the fourth round of Roland Garros for the first time. That run included an emphatic 4-6 6-1 6-0 victory over number seven Aryna Sabalenka.
The win also punctuated another landmark for Giorgi who has now reached the second week in three of the four Grand Slams. Victory over Sabalenka was also a first over a Top 10 player in a Major since 2013.
It was quite a feat considering that the power-hitting Italian had zero form whatsoever coming to Roland Garros. She had lost in each of her three clay-court tournaments prior, and her winless run on tour dated back even further to the Australian Open when she defeated Tereza Martincova in the second round.
Giorgi is set to return to the lawns of Nottingham for the first time since 2018. Her last visit was not so memorable as she lost to Dalila Jakupovic in the first round. Could another early exit materialize when she takes on British charge Sonay Kartal?
Kartal Earns Wild Card at Home Tournament
Sonay Kartal is one of the most consistent performers on the ITF circuit. The 20-year-old British ace has compiled a near-perfect 23-2 record at that level, hoisting almost every single title on offer.
To be precise, Kartal has accumulated four trophies in 2022, all coming on British soil. She had endured a series of injuries in 2021 but has since bounced back with aplomb.
Kartal’s grass-court season began at the Surbiton ITF this past week where she suffered the second defeat of her 2022 season to the experienced American Madison Brengle. Regardless of that result, she was projected to break the Top 300, peaking at a career-high world No. 284.
She is among a host of British names who will feature in Nottingham, earning a deserved wild card at her home tournament. Kartal’s opening-round match against Giorgi will be her first ever on the WTA tour.
Giorgi v Kartal Prediction and Tip
This is such a tough draw for the British debutant, but her recent display against World No. 56 Brengle in Surbiton should fill her with optimism.
