Millman brands Italian Tennis Federation ‘pathetic’ after lack of Seppi wildcard

Australian tennis player voiced support for Andrea Seppi who was not given a chance to say goodbye to tennis on native soil.

Seppi recently revealed his retirement from tennis and it's something that many knew was coming but the sudden decision surprised many. Seppi then revealed on social media that he planned on saying goodbye on native soil in Florence or Napoli but both events denied him a wild card entry as the Italian Tennis Federation explained it would have been a 'waste'.

Millman voiced his thoughts on social media platfrom Twitter:

"Andreas Seppi not getting a wildcard into a tour event in Italy to end his career is a joke. The guy has had a brilliant career, represented his country at Davis Cups and Olympic Games and the Italian Federation can’t give a WC? Pretty pathetic."
