US Open: Tiny blonde bombshell Camila Giorgi goes wild

Giorgi, ranked 136th in the world, had not played since a third-round run at Wimbledon because of a right shoulder injury. Wozniacki was caught off guard and quickly knew she was in trouble as Giorgi fired 46 winners in the match to only 13 for the Danish standout.
