The quarterfinals round at Wimbledon is underway this morning. Serena Williams is currently playing. Her match is being televised on ESPN.

Camila Giorgi is Williams' quarterfinals opponent. The 26-year-old Italy native surprised many with her push into the Round of 8.

The 5-foot-6 Italian star made her professional debut in 2006. Her quarterfinals appearance at Wimbledon this year is her first-ever Round of 8 appearance at a Grand Slam event.

Giorgi advanced into the quarterfinals round by beating Ekaterina Makarova in straight sets on Monday.

Giorgi is very active on social media. She has more than 130,000 followers on Instagram.

Giorgi is a big underdog in this morning's match. Williams hasn't been playing at a peak level, but she's still expected to advance into the semifinals. An upset win by Giorgi in this morning's match would come as a pretty big shocker to the tennis world.

The winner of today's Camila Giorgi-Serena Williams match will advance into the semifinals. Giorgi has never made it past the Round of 8 at a Grand Slam Event. Williams, of course, is one of the most-decorated tennis players of all-time. She's won Wimbledon seven times.

The Giorgi-Williams match is being televised on ESPN.
