ATP Statements on Death of H.S.H. Prince Rainier III of Monaco
Roger Federer, World No. 1: "I want to express my deepest condolences to the royal family and the people of Monaco. I remember how much Prince Rainier III embraced the tournament. It will be difficult to play there at this time, but we will do so to honor the Prince, the royal family and the people of Monaco."
Mark Miles, ATP Chief Executive Officer: "Today is a sad day for the ATP and men’s tennis due to the passing of H.S.H. Prince Rainier III of Monaco. As the base of our European Headquarters and one of the world’s greatest tournaments, the Monte-Carlo Masters, Monaco is our home. Prince Rainier was a loyal and passionate supporter of professional men’s tennis, and that’s certainly also true of his son and successor, H.S.H. Prince Albert. I join the players, tournaments and staff of the ATP in extending my deepest and heartfelt condolences to the royal family."
Horst Klosterkemper, ATP Managing Director Europe: “We are deeply grieved at the passing away of H.S.H. Prince Rainier III of Monaco and would like to extend our condolences to H.S.H. Prince Albert and his family. Monaco is a very special place for the ATP; we have had our European base here since 1990 and have had great support from the Grimaldi family for one-and-a-half decades. The ATP joins the world in mourning this significant loss today."
