The US Open , the last big one of the year, will not be able to count on one of the emerging players. Amanda Anisimova , 17, 24th in the world, semifinalist of the last edition of Roland Garros, left the tournament after the sudden death of her father and coach, Konstantin, 50, who was found dead at home. Junior champion in New York in 2017, the American of Russian origin is one of the players with the greatest future in the circuit, although her figure looked somewhat opaque after the emergence of Coco Cauff. "We are shocked and saddened by the sudden death of our father," says a statement from the Anisimova family. "We appreciate the outpouring of love and support during this difficult time and ask that our privacy be respected. Thank you," the statement concludes.
The American Tennis Federation (USTA) sent a public condolences to the tennis player. "Our sincere condolences to Amanda and her family, and we pray that the love and support of Amanda's many friends and family in tennis will help her comfort her in this difficult time," he said.
In his first participation in Roland Garros, Anisimova finished in quarters with Simona Halep, who defended the title, before falling in the semifinals with Asleigh Barty, in the end champion. In eighth he had fired the Spanish Aliona Bolsova.
