Fabio Fognini has chosen to make an announcement through a post on Instagram, which should in all likelihood concern his future as a professional athlete. Fognini didi it in a curious and very cryptic message that appeared on their social profiles on the afternoon of Wednesday 11 January, which undoubtedly displaced all tennis enthusiasts and Italian fans.
“New Zealand, sadly the time has come to say goodbye. Thanks for the warm welcome and for the beautiful memories of the last 15 years,” added and concluded the player from Sanremo, making the fans immediately worried.” He said it in the brief note after bowing out in both the singles and doubles tournaments in Auckland Is the Ligurian actually thinking about retiring from tennis? Will this really be his last season on the major circuit? Some legitimate questions from fans, who await news and confirmation from the 35-year-old tennis player himself, who probably anticipated his future intentions (already in the short term?).
Is Fabio Fognini thinking about retiring?
Fognini has somewhat confirmed at the beginning of the year how he struggles to reach the level of his best days, especially in the individual. In fact, the blue recently lost the match in Auckland against the American Jenson Brooksby, in which he gave his all and managed to win the first set as well.
The match then lengthened and Fabio didn’t have that extra brilliance and freshness, compared to his opponent, to play it to the end and obtain a solid success. In doubles, the Ligurian continues to put on a show with his great partner Simone Bolelli: the two were unable to win the first race of 2023 in the competition in New Zealand, losing to the Austrian couple Miedler-Erler.
However, the Italian duo has already shown that they can make a difference and can compete with anyone; a test is precisely 2022, in which the two fought to the last for a place at the Nitto ATP Finals in Turin. Several have thought that double could be the future of Fabio Fognini, who at the moment has surprised everyone a bit with a rather clear and hardly misunderstood message on social media.
