Camila Giorgi hasn't made any public proclamations, but she is listed as retired on the International Tennis Integrity Agency's website.

The website lists May 7 as Giorgi's retirement date.

It was certainly a surprise that the 32-year-old Italian wasn't playing in the Internazionali BNL d'Italia in Rome. She also reportedly didn't enter the upcoming French Open.

Giorgi's most recent match was a second-round loss to top-ranked Iga Swiatek at the Miami Open in March.

Giorgi was just 3-6 in singles play this season.

According to the ITIA, a player who declares themselves as retired can't return to sanctioned events unless they make themselves available for out-of-competition drug testing for at least six months.

Giorgi has won four WTA singles crowns and more than $6.4 million in earnings. Her best Grand Slam performance was reaching the Wimbledon quarterfinals in 2018.

Her career-high ranking was No. 26 in October 2018. Giorgi was currently ranked 116th.
