Tennis.Life has learned that Konstantin Anisimov, Anisimova’s father and longtime coach, was found dead today.

There’s no confirmed information available yet as to what happened. Anisimov was not know to have been ill.

Apparently he was alone when he was found, and may have had a heart attack.

...

We’re told Anisimova – understandably – is pulling out of the US Open, which begins in a week. She would have been the No. 24 seed, just two years after winning the junior event.
edit: also confirmed by ESPN

What awful shocking news... the poor poor girl

My heart goes out to her and her family at this time.






At this stage though only one random tennis blogging site is reporting it so we dont even know if this is true or not.

Sadly it is



R.I.P Konstantin

What a tragedy. Im lost for words
Used to be in regular contact with him for years in Russian-language tennis forums and personal e-mails. With a lot of agruments on some issues and complete consent on others. One thing that was never in doubt is how much he was devoted to both his daughters, eager to do anything humanly possible to help them succeed and be happy

:awww: that is so sad for Amanda, her father, and their family.

She seems to have a good head on her shoulders though.
