Correct me if i am wrong, but the Hodgkins Lymphoma is also what WTA player Alisa Kleybanova has been fighting/recovering from yes?
Soon puts tennis in perspective and particularly show that "niggling" injuries that players sometimes count as "misfortunate" because it causes them to miss a few tournaments really aren't that serious at all.
I believe so. Fortunately HL is a very curable illness even in higher stages. Treatments ( doses of chemo,radiation if you need it and at what dose)are very dependent on your stage and the locality of the disease. Good luck to him! Seems to be a good guy ( at least from the ATP video Newport tournament)
