Kleybanova to return after cancer treatment

Former top-20 player Alisa Kleybanova says she has completed her
treatment for cancer and will play at the Sony Ericsson Open next
month.

The 22-year-old Russian announced in July that she had
contracted Hodgkin’s lymphoma and would undergo treatment in Italy,
where she has a training base.

She said in a posting on the WTA website on Wednesday that the
”treatments were successful, my doctors are happy with my health
and I’m feeling great!”

Kleybanova, who has won two singles titles, is training in
Florida and says she has been given a wild-card entry into the Sony
Ericsson Open, which begins March 20.
