USA Teen Tennis Player Victoria Duval Diagnosed With Hodgkin's Lymphoma

LONDON, United Kingdom–The 18-year-old tennis player Victoria Duval was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. She reached the second round of Wimbledon and is ranked 114 in the world.

A biopsy was performed in England before Wimbledon and sent to the USA for further confirmation. Treatment will begin immediately since it was caught in the early stage and she hopes to be fully recovered in a few months. The brave girl received the diagnosis right after she won in the first round against twenty-ninth seed Sorana Cirstea.

“It is with a heavy heart that I will have to step away from tennis competition for a short period after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma,” she said. “I received the news after my first round of qualifying at Wimbledon but decided to continue to compete. Being on court provided me with much comfort. I have complete faith that God will assist me and my family with all that we need, to achieve victory and become stronger from this journey.”

British tennis player Ross Hutchins was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in December 2012. He is back and competing on the tour.
