Paolo Maldini Has Qualified For a Professional Tennis Tournament

Paolo Maldini Has Qualified For a Professional Tennis Tournament

Not content with being one of the greatest footballers of the modern era, Paolo Maldini has apparently now set his sights on the world of tennis after he qualified for his first-ever professional tournament.

The former Italy international turns 49 next week, and he’ll celebrate by making his ATP debut in his home city of Milan.

Maldini won a whopping seven Serie A titles and five Champions League titles during his illustrious playing days, and now he’s has been given a wild card to the Aspria Tennis Cup, an event on the ATP Challenger Tour.

He will partner his coach Stefano Landonio, a former professional player himself, in the men’s doubles competition at the Aspria Harbour Club of Milan.

Personally, those people who are amazing at absolutely everything they do usually annoy us, but in this instance we’re definitely hoping that Paolo proves to be a success.

Next year’s Wimbledon, just after his 50th? It has a nice ring to it.
