Eight months after being diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, Carla Suarez Navarro has confirmed that she has finished her treatment and overcame cancer.

The former world No 6 announced in September last year that she had started chemotherapy after being diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma a few weeks prior.

The Spaniard has now overcome the disease and shared the good news on social media.

“Another step forward. Today I finished my treatment and overcame Hodgkin lymphoma,” she wrote.

“Thanks to all for your warm messages. Every word of support gave me strength during the past few months.

“All my gratitude to healthcare professionals who take care of us every day. I’M CURED!”

The 32-year-old was due to retire from tennis at the end of the 2020 season and was set for her US Open farewell when she started feeling unwell and withdrew from the hard-court Grand Slam.

She was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma and immediately started treatment.

According to WTA Tour, Suarez has pushed back her retirement to the end of 2021 and is expected to play at Roland Garros.
