Queen Camila in demand

I’m not a reader of the Daily Star, but someone should point out that we no longer live in the dark ages. Within seconds of Camila Giorgi being eliminated from Wimbledon, they were splashing provocative images of the Italian tennis star all over their website.

    “Wimbledon fans distraught after sizzling star Camila Giorgi crashes out in first round,” read the headline. It claimed “tennis stars are in meltdown” after the Italian departed the grand-slam tournament, describing her as a “bombshell” and noting her 26,000 social media followers, before a selection of seductive images were shared. From the finest green lawns to the gutter.

    But there is still hope for Giorgi, 27, as research shows 81 per cent of Wimbledon champions were not married at the time of winning the prestigious title. Another interesting stat was that 89 per cent of champions had no children, giving those living solo a huge advantage.

    Giorgi clearly has many admirers, particularly in the Italian press, including one unfortunate reporter who was in such a daze he forgot to turn on his voice recorder prior to her press conference.

    It would appear Giorgi won’t be short of career options when she finally hangs up her racquet. But when asked if she was down in the dumps while recently sidelined with a injury, she surprised reporters by shrugging her shoulders. It’s clear there’s more to life than just tennis for Camila.

    l Stephen Joseph, Hollie Geey and Ben Schwarzmann will be the flag-bearers for Team Maccabi Great Britain at the Opening Ceremony of the 15th European Maccabi Games in Budapest.

    Joseph will carry the Union Jack flag into the New Nándor Hidegkuti Stadium at the end of the month. He describes his sporting highlight as entering the Olympic Stadium in Berlin with 2,500 other Jewish athletes at the 2015 European Maccabi Games.

    He recalled: “Without doubt that was one of the most memorable, moving and emotional experiences imaginable.”

    Geey, assistant-manager of the Women’s Open Football squad, will parade the Maccabi GB flag.Schwartzmann, described as “one of the up and coming lights of MGB” by General Team Manager Joel Nathan, will hold the flag of Team Maccabi GB’s lead sponsor, UJIA.
