Amanda Anisimova was living the dream with her father to be about to become one of the most popular figures in pro-tennis with her magnificent results, attractive figure and sparkling character.
Unfortunately, the American sensation had the devastating news that her beloved father and longtime coach Konstantin Anisimov passed away for reasons that have not been disclosed so far.
This is obviously a horrible loss for the 17-year-old that decided immediately to withdraw from the upcoming US Open.
Kyrgios, Sharapova, Gauff, Evert and the tennis world with Amanda
The tennis world was shocked by what happened to Aisimova to send its support to the grieving teenager.
Here some tweets.
My ❤️ with you Amanda.
