The Canadian tennis community is still reeling from the tragic loss of Bruno Agostinelli Jr. on March 9th, 2016. The news of his death was followed by an outpouring of kind words and memories from many who knew and loved him. Today would have been Bruno’s 29th birthday, and we have collected some of those messages in tribute to him on this day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Still can't believe what has happened to Bruno Agostinelli, it's such a shock… I've only met Bruno a handful of times, but I could immediately see what a genuinely compassionate and generous person he was, and how much the people around him cared for him. He was always passionate about what he did, and he touched the lives of so many of his students and peers. There was never a person that I've spoken to that didn't have the utmost respect for Bruno, he was truly a class act, and a role model. The last time I saw him was at his home club in Niagara just last summer, having played an exhibition match against him, and it still brings me to tears thinking that it will have been our final encounter. To one of the best people I've had a chance to get to know, Bruno, you will be missed by me, and many others. You were here for far too short a time, but in that time, you truly lived your life your way, and influenced so many others along the way. May you rest in peace.
