Social Activities to be cancelled

From Yahoo! news...

The Monte Carlo Masters, the season's first major clay-court tournament, will proceed as planned on Monday, but all accompanying social events are off because of the death Wednesday of the tiny principality's long-ruling monarch.

The Monte Carlo Masters said Thursday's gala for players, VIPs and media will not be held. Prince Albert II, who succeeded his father, usually plays Bjorn Borg or Henri Leconte in an exhibition match, but that "will no doubt be canceled, too," tournament spokeswoman Pamela Richardson said.

Rainier, 81, took the throne in 1949 and had been Europe's longest-serving monarch. There was no immediate word on whether the tournament will hold a ceremony in his honor.

"For years Rainier was actively involved in the tournament until illness prevented him coming on a regular basis," Richardson said. "The royal family has been a pillar of the tournament."
