Seppi Is Coming Home

Andreas Seppi

ORTISEI, October 2, 2017

Andreas Seppi is set to return to his home tournament in South Tyrol for the first time in three years. The Bolzano native announced to compete in the €64,000 Sparkasse ATP Challenger Val Gardena held from 7 to 15 October at the Tennis Center in Ortisei.

“I always loved to play here. Unfortunately, I had to skip the tournament in recent years in order to get ready for the new season. As the event is taking place earlier this season and I am not playing in Asia, it suits well this year,” told Seppi, who won the tournament in Ortisei in 2013 and 2014.

“I hope to play another good tournament this year. I am looking forward to it!”

The 33-year-old Italian will play his first round match on October 10. A successful start would mean his 100th match win on the ATP Challenger Tour. Seppi only lost one match in Ortisei when he finished runner-up to Germany’s Benjamin Becker in the 2012 final.
