Amanda Anisimova is slowing getting back to tennis after the heartbreaking loss of her beloved father and longtime coach Konstantin.
The American teenager had her 18th birthday party on the 31st of August, and she is now back to the practice court.
Amanda is extremely passionate about her profession and she couldn’t miss the epic US Open quarterfinal between Matteo Berrettini and Gael Monfils that the Italian won after 4 hours.
Gael Monfils once more grabbed the attention of the media for being extremely gracious in defeat. When the Frenchman was at the net he “refused” the handshake with the Italian to instead hug his conqueror with a big smile.
Amanda loved it, and so did we.
Loving this handshake 🤣 https://t.co/HUPfOaBHJP
