In his message on Instagram, he said: "Hello guys, hello friends. I've been away from social media for a few months, I've reflected a lot, I've metabolized. I've chosen to be around my dearest people, my partner Giorgia and the little Leonardo I have decided that the time has come to start a new chapter in my career, to turn the page and find out what life can still hold for me.
It was a difficult decision to make, anyone who has been a sportsman, regardless of level, knows what it means to move on, say that famous enough. I thank you for the support you have given me over the years, I have felt your affection even while playing in the most remote places on the planet.
It has been a fascinating journey, full of moments that have given me the armor to face new challenges and continue to enjoy life. Yes, because after a tennis career there is still room for much, much more."
