Milos Raonic and Denis Shapovalov reacted to the Toronto van attack that left ten people dead and 16 people injured earlier this week. One dead person was identified as Anne-Marie D'Amico, who was a longtime volunteer for the Rogers Cup.
'It is deeply saddening to learn about the recent events that have occurred in my hometown of Toronto,' an emotional Raonic wrote on Instagram. 'I grew up less than 2 km away from where this terrible event happened.
It is difficult to imagine something like this happening so close to home. My thoughts are with the victims and their families. It is such a tragic event, and heartbreaking to see that people are capable of committing a senseless act like this.
The tennis community has also been directly hit by this terrible event. We lost a big part of our community with the passing of Anne-Marie D'Amico. She gave her time and passion to the Rogers Cup for many years and did so from a young age.
Anne-Marie helped make the Rogers Cup the great event it is, and she will be truly missed. My deepest condolences to her friends, family and loved ones.' The 19-year-old Shapovalov wrote: 'My heart goes out to the victims in the Toronto attack.
So sad and tragic.'
