American tennis player Victoria Duval, who lost in the second round at Wimbledon last week, has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma and will undergo immediate treatment for the cancer.
The statement said Hodgkin's, the most common form of cancer in adolescents, "was caught in a very early stage."
It says Duval "will undergo treatment right away and due to her overall good health and isolation of the cancer, the prognosis is a full recovery in a few months."
Duval reached the second round of the U.S. Open last year, beating 2011 champion Sam Stosur in the first round.
