Andreas Seppi is a tennis player who once reached World Number 18 in January 2013. Seppi was raised in South Tyrol in Northern Italy, where he developed his skills in tennis. Because he lived in the province, his favorite surface was the grass court. Aside from Italian, he also speaks English and German.
During the pandemic, Seppi and his wife welcomed a new blessing in their household and named their first child “Liv.” They are currently living in Colorado because his wife wanted to pursue a Master’s degree at the University of Colorado.
Seppi became a professional player in 2001 when he joined the ATP Challenger Series and the ATP Futures for 3 seasons. In his 3rd year, he won his first Futures event by defeating Lars Ubel. In 2003, he joined the Generali Open in Kitzbuhel and Bucharest.
Seppi was one of the Italian representatives in the Davis Cup in 2013, however, he lost to Irakli Labadze. Nevertheless, he joined the Generali Open as a wildcard player but suffered a loss to Rainer Schuttler during the second round. Fortunately, he immediately became stronger a few weeks later when he joined the US Open and defeated Schuttler.
At the end of the 2005 season, he was able to step into the Top 100 for the first time and has qualified for 4 ATP Masters Series events. He also went back to compete in the Davis Cup and successfully defeated Juan Carlos Ferrero. Unluckily, he faced Nadal in the reverse singles and lose the round. After his performance during the Davis Cup, he participated in Palermo Tour, and successfully defeated Tomas Berdych, the eventual champion.
Entering into the Top 20
Seppi is a hardworking and intelligent player, as he usually finishes his game in his best form. That’s why it never came as a surprise to see his name entering the Top 20 in 2013. During the 2013 season, he was able to reach the fourth round of the Australian Open, the main reason why his ranking dramatically went up to World Number 18 from Number 23.
2014 was not a good year for Seppi, as he started the season with poor performance during the Hopman Cup when he was defeated by Marinko Matosevic. In the Australian Open, he only reached the second round when Donald Young defeated him.
