    The Story

    Bouras played #1 for UNLV as recently as 2011. He was ranked top 1000 in the ATP from Algeria. Just played in a future this past week. Apparently "became ill".


    RIP Mehdi. Very sad.

    He was a popular guy in the tennis world. Guys like Tsonga and Gasquet tweeted about their friendship with him and their sadness with his death.
