She made her senior international tournament debut in 2006 at the ITF Women’s Circuit.

After winning her first ITF title in 2009, she made her WTA Tour main-draw debut at the 2011 Wimbledon Championships.

Giorgi went on to reach the fourth round of the 2012 Wimbledon Championships in just her second appearance at the tournament.

After her successful run at the championships, she made her top-100 debut in the WTA rankings. The following year, she followed it up with a third round run at the Wimbledon Championships, and made her second Grand Slam fourth round at the US Open.

She reached her first Grand Slam quarterfinal at the 2018 Wimbledon Championships, six years after her Wimbledon breakout tournament.

She reached her best singles ranking of world No. 30 in July 2015.

Giorgi is known for her aggressive style of game and her powerful flat groundstrokes, and is considered to be one of the hardest hitters of the ball on the tour.

Her most notable professional wins have come at the 2013 US Open, 2014 BNP Paribas Open, and 2014 Aegon International, defeating former world No. 1 players Caroline Wozniacki, Maria Sharapova, and Victoria Azarenka, respectively.
