Konstantin Anisimov, the father and coach of rising tennis star Amanda Anisimova, was found dead on Monday, the American player’s agent informed ESPN.

The cause of the death is not known as his family is yet to issue a statement. He was in his mid fifties.

Consequently, Anisimova has decided not to play the prestigious US Open, which is scheduled to get under way on August 26.

Anisimova, all of 17, has made rapid strides in her short career so far. Apart from winning a singles and a doubles title each on the WTA Tour, her biggest achievement has been making it to the semi-finals of the French Open earlier this year.

Anisimova, who last played at Silicon Valley Classic in San Jose earlier this month, is currently enjoying a career-high ranking of No. 23.
