A tribute to a colleague and friend ready to say goodbye to the playing fields.

Fabio Fognini wrote on Instagram a message dedicated to Andreas Seppi, who announced his retirement after the Ortisei Challenger tournament. And after an initial message on the Stories (“I would have preferred to say goodbye to you in Naples… mah… Good luck Crucco!!! I wish you the best”), he reiterated the concept better in an actual post.

“It was great to share so many years together on the circuit. You have been a friend, a partner, an opponent but above all an example of dedication, professionalism and willpower,” Fognini wrote in his message, accompanied by a roundup of photographs in which he poses together with Seppi.

“You always spurred me on, pushing me to improve every time we faced each other. I embrace you and wish you the best for the future. Great Seppi!” concluded Fognini.
