“One last step on this road. Today I have finished my treatment and can say that I have overcome Hodgkin’s disease. Thanks everyone. Every encouraging message has given me a lot of strength, ”said 32-year-old Suárez Navarro.
The tennis star announced the bad news at the beginning of September last year. Just before that, she had already had to cancel for the US Open for health reasons.
