Former Tennis star Carla Suarez Navarro has finally come victorious in her battle with Hodgkin lymphoma, a type of Cancer. The Spaniard took to Twitter while sharing this good news with her global fans and followers.

“Another step forward. Today I finished my treatment and overcame Hodgkin lymphoma. Thanks to all for your warm messages. Every word of support gave me strength during the past few months,” she wrote.

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

The former Spanish tennis star further said that her professional approach towards the treatment ( coming from her tennis playing days) has played a key role in her recovery process.

“The sport has been a fundamental part of my life – it has given me immense joy and I cannot be more grateful for all the experiences that it has allowed me to live. At this time, I notice that the time has come to complete a beautiful chapter and begin to enjoy other areas of life. Tennis will always be in me,” she said during an interview with one of the famous sporting daily.

“Tennis right now has a very high demand. To be high in the ranking you need absolute consistency, a world-class level of physical conditioning and a 24-hour daily psychological commitment. I have been in high competition for more than 15 years and have lived through these realities since the beginning of my adolescence. These are lessons that have formed me as a person and that will serve me for a lifetime.”
