Ex- Italy Player Maldini Qualifies For Professional Tennis Tournament

Legendary Italy and AC Milan footballer, Paolo Maldini, has qualified for a professional tennis tournament on the ATP Challenger Tour.
The 48-year-old, capped 126 times by Italy, won a qualifier in Italy with doubles partner Stefano Landonio.

The pair will compete at the Aspria Tennis Cup, a Challenger Tour event in Milan which begins on 29 June.

The Challenger Tour is the tier below the top-level ATP World Tour, which features the best players in the world.

Maldini spent 31 years with AC Milan, 24 of them as a professional, winning seven league titles and the Champions League five times.

He will be 49 on the day the Aspria Tennis Cup begins, with 16 doubles pairings competing on clay.
