CAMILA GIORGI wowed the tennis world by swooping to the Canadian Open title despite being unseeded for the tournament.
But the Italian is already well known to her 471,000 Instagram followers as she combines her day job with life as a lingerie model.
No4 seed Karolina Pliskova was defeated in Sunday’s final in Montreal after Giorgi knocked out American talent Coco Gauff earlier in the competition.
It was the biggest win of her career so far, and her third on the WTA circuit, having recently reached the quarter-finals of the Tokyo Olympics.
Giorgi began playing tennis when she was five and is said by Bild to want a career as a fashion designer or writer when she leaves the court.
But the 29-year-old could be about to make a big name for herself as she looks to better her best Grand Slam finish, which came in 2018 and the quarter-finals at Wimbledon.
A wealth of fans have been tracking the World No34’s progress for some time.
Alongside images of her tennis exploits, Giorgi regularly posts shots from her lingerie and fashion shoots.

One image of her in a set of red underwear in December was captioned ‘Merry Christmas’ and earned 59,000 likes.
In 2018, she posed with her Linz Open trophy for a stylish shoot that was posted with the phrase: “Thank you all for all the support you have always shown to me.”
And her interest in both sport and fashion extends across her family with brother Amadeus a former footballer who now runs clothing brand Giomila.
