No matter how nice, or how good you are, there will always be someone who will try and knock you down for it. It’s just one of the sad facts of life, and it affects all walks of life. Even in the world of professional tennis, there are people who for whatever reasons, choose to trash talk popular tennis players to anyone who will listen.

And no one can report on how well (or not) Camila Giorgi is doing without bringing up her father and his embarrassing “money problems”, and trying to connect her in some possible way.
