??☀️ Palermo Ladies Open – SF Preview + Prediction
?? Fiona Ferro vs. ?? Camila Giorgi

A pair of surprise semi-finalists will do battle for the second spot in the Palermo Ladies Open final when Fiona Ferro takes on Camila Giorgi. Ferro is on fire; the Frenchwoman has won 13 matches in a row but will need to maintain a high level against a red-hot Camila Giorgi.

Ferro arrived in Palermo having won 10 matches in a row at exhibition events and has continued that strong run to reach her third WTA tour level semi-final. Ferro is yet to drop a set this week, the 23-year-old started the event with a 6/2 6/1 win over Nadia Podoroska before defeating the 8th seeded Ekaterina Alexandrova 7/5 6/2. Ferro booked her spot in the final 4 with a strong 6/4 6/1 win over the always-tough Sara Errani, Ferro’s was clinical in winning 9 of the last 10 games against Errani.

Giorgi is through to her second WTA tour level semi-final on a clay court. The Italian reached the final 4 in Palermo with a remarkable comeback victory over the 7th seeded Dayana Yastremska. Giorgi saved a pair of match points in the second set, one with a stunning return as Yastremska served for the match at 5-4. The damaging baseline hitting from Giorgi was ultimately too much for Yastremska to handle, as it would have been for most on tour. Previously Giorgi defeated Rebecca Peterson 7/5 6/4 and Kaja Juvan 3/6 6/2 6/4.

This will be the first career meeting between Ferro and Giorgi.

I’m going to give the edge to Giorgi here. Granted Ferro is in great form but facing a confident Giorgi is a whole new challenge. Giorgi played brilliantly in her comeback win over Yastremska, arguably the best anyone has played this week. Giorgi has won a couple of tough matches this week whilst Ferro is yet to be tested, this could work in the Italian’s favour in what should be a tense match. Having saved match points and escaped in her last match Giorgi can play with added freedom here, which is always a dangerous prospect given her extreme firepower and added home court advantage.

Prediction: Camila Giorgi to defeat Fiona Ferro in 3 sets
