Camila Giorgi vs. Rebecca Marino head to head
Their only game to date came at the ITF Circuit in 2010, where Marino defeated Giorgi 6-2, 6-1 to advance to the Quarterfinals.
Giorgi at Career High after the Birmingham Quarterfinals
Grass has held a special place for Giorgi as the Italian player has won one of her three WTA titles on this surface, apart from also having her best performance ever at a Grand Slam at Wimbledon when she reached the quarterfinals in 2018.
Giorgi has had a mixed performance so far this year.
The world number 29, currently at her best career rankings, reached the second round in Nottingham where she was shocked by Harriet Dart despite starting 1/4 favorite in that encounter.
Two wins later, Giorgi marched to the quarterfinals at the Birmingham Open only to be beaten in straight sets by Beatriz Maia Haddad.
What she is now hoping for is a strong performance against the lucky loser Marino, who is playing on grass for the first time since 2011 this year.
Marino doubles her winning number on grass
The last time Marino set foot on a grass pitch before the start of this season was way back in 2011. That year, however, the Canadian has played at Nottingham, Birmingham and now Eastbourne, scoring in the main draw in each of those games.
In fact, she also won her opener in Nottingham and now she’s managed to be a lucky loser here too, beating Heather Watson in her first round match.
Marino scored a 7-6(1), 6-4 win over her British opponent in an hour and 43 minutes. She hit seven aces and broke her opponent three times while losing her own serve twice to complete the win.
It would be interesting to see if she can give Giorgi a similar fight but with the form she’s shown on grass all season it could be interesting.
Giorgi v Marino prediction and tip
Giorgi starts 3/5 as a favourite, but if a world No. 29 were to enter a match against a player who is outside the top 100 and so inexperienced on grass, we would be offering these types of odds.
