Italian Tennis Player Wanted to Retire; Instead, He Got Insulted

Italian veteran tennis player Andreas Seppi wanted to use the opportunity of tournaments in Florence or Naples to formally retire from professional tennis and put an end to his career. However, unexpectedly he got insulted by the Tennis Federation of Italy in the process.

Seppi revealed that the Tennis Federation of Italy did permit him to play in the tournaments and said that paying for tickets for his games would be money wasted.

“I would have loved to play in the Florence or Naples tournament for my farewell to professional tennis, but unfortunately, the Italian Tennis Federation did not allow me to, saying that giving a Wild Card to a retiring player would have been a waste” he posted on his Instagram feed. Seppi is currently 38 years of age, and throughout his career, he won three titles.
