Tennis star Camila Giorgi flees country, disappears as rumours swirl
Tennis star Camila Giorgi has reportedly fled Italy with authorities keen to question her over gaps in her tax returns.

Rumours have swirled about the 32-year-old after she appeared to quietly retire from the sport this week after she was listed as “retired” on the International Tennis Integrity Agency’s website.
The Italian broke her silence on Sunday morning, confirming her decision to retire.

Her posts on her Instagram stories have only raised more questions.

“Please trust this Instagram for truthful information. To my lovely fans, I am happy to formally announce retirement from my tennis career,” she wrote. 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 rumours 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 with her family

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.
