We recently learned that Victoria Duval, after winning the first of three qualifying matches at Wimbledon, was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. The diagnosis came after a biopsy taken in England before the tournament, and further tests in the U.S. have confirmed the results.

Duval’s big breakthrough came as a 17-year-old at last year’s US Open, when she defeated former champion Samantha Stosur.

Hodgkin’s is the most common form of cancer in adolescents, and, the statement said, the cancer was caught in its very early stages. We wish her a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing her back on the court soon!
