The Italian addressed those reports with a story on her Instagram page and confirmed she is indeed retired.

Giorgi posted: “Please trust this Instagram for truthful information. To my lovely fans, I am happy to formally announce retirement from my tennis career. I am so grateful for your wonderful love and support for so many years.

“I cherish all the beautiful memories. There have been many inaccurate rumors about my future plans, so I look forward to providing more information about exciting opportunities ahead.

“It is a joy to share my life with you, and let’s continue this journey together. With much love, Camila.”

The mystery, however, deepened after La Gazzetta dello Sport revealed the tennis player turned social media model fled to the United States.

The same source claimed Giorgi is wanted by Italy’s financial police.

The Macerata-born star is said to have departed alongside her father Sergio, mother Claudia and brothers Leandro as well as Amadeus.

According to investigations of the Florence Prosecutor’s Office, the former Wimbledon star and her family have several “gaps” regarding tax returns, which have never been submitted.
