The City of Niagara Falls honoured the life of Bruno Agostinelli Jr. this past Saturday, as they named a court after the Niagara Falls native, who lost his life in a tragic motorcycling incident over two years ago.
Canadian doubles legend Daniel Nestor and Davis Cup captain Frank Dancevic were on hand at the ceremony, accompanying Agostinelli Jr.’s wife and son, who was born just two weeks before the incident.

Having competed internationally at both the college and professional levels, Agostinelli Jr. left behind an inspiring legacy in Canadian tennis, which culminated in his role as National Junior Tennis Coach for Tennis Canada in which he worked with rising Canadian stars Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger-Aliassime.
His contributions to tennis in Canada will never be forgotten.
