He reached a year-end best ranking of No. 35 in 2008, after winning a total of 30 matches. His best showing was at the AMS Hamburg tournament where he advanced to the semi-finals. 2011 proved to be a spectacular year for Seppi, as he finished in the Top 50 for the fourth time in five years. Seppi won his first ATP World Tour title in Eastbourne, making him the first Italian to win an ATP grass court title. Seppi finished in the Top 25 for the first time in his career in 2012 and winning two ATP World Tour titles.
