The stars of the WTA and ATP World Tour walked onto center court for a moment of silence on Monday.
It was in honor of Elena Baltacha, who lost her battle with liver cancer on Sunday morning.
Baltacha had retired from professional tennis in November 2013 after a long and successful career.
But beyond that, she was one of the most beloved players on tour, particularly by her fellow Brits.
The Murray brothers - Andy and Jamie - were particularly close with their fellow Scot.
Murray will take part in Rally For Bally this coming June 15, an event dear to Baltacha's heart...
It will raise money for the Elena Baltacha Academy of Tennis and the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
The moment of silence took place right before Spanish No.1 Carla Suárez Navarro's night match.
