The once-celebrated Italian player, recognized for achieving a career-high singles ranking of No. 26, now finds herself under the lens of the Florence Prosecutor's Office due to suspected tax discrepancies. Authorities have raised concerns regarding the failure of Giorgi and her family to file tax returns, leading to ongoing investigations.

Despite attempts by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) to establish contact with Giorgi or her family, their efforts have proven fruitless. Italian media outlets have reported a complete severance of ties between the family and various sporting organizations.
