Even though 18-year-old tennis player Victoria Duval had been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma after biopsy tests in England, the brave young right handed tennis player put all thoughts of that behind her as she entered the Wimbledon championships, where she made it to the second round.

In a statement from her management team this week, they said that Duval will immediately begin treatment for the cancer, which is common among young people of her age. It continued that in the case of the girl who was ranked at no. 114 in the world in June, the disease was caught at a very early stage, so the prognosis for full recovery is hopeful.

The disappointed Miami, Florida native, who grew up in Haiti, said that her treatment must come first and until she was fully recovered, she would have to step away from tennis competitions.

Duval went on to say “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.” She continued, “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.”

Although Duval was suffering from severe back pain during her play at Wimbledon, she beat Sorana Cirstea, who was seeded 29th in the first round, 6-4, 3-6, 6-1. The brave Floridian went on to a competitive match with Belinda Bencic, 17, but lost to her in two sets, 6-4, 7-5.

During the last four years, two other tennis players, the Russian born Allisa Kleybanova and Britain’s Ross Hutchins, have been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. However, both players have made a full recovery and have returned to delighting the crowds on the tennis courts.

Duval is confident that she will overcome the latest difficulty to enter her life because her family have already overcome so many challenges. While living in Haiti as a child, Duval was kidnapped for a short while and her father was trapped for several days under the rubble of his house after the disastrous 2010 earthquake struck the country.

In a tweet from Billie Jean King, she said that Duval was a strong girl who would fight against this new challenge in her life and come out the winner. She added that her thoughts and those of other tennis professionals go with her.
