Alisa Kleybanova finished therapy, comeback possible on clay in 2012

Cari Champion, an anchor and courtside reporter for the TennisChannel, tweeted that Alisa Kleybanova, who was diagnosed with a serious illness, Hodgkin's lymphoma, has ended her chemo/radiation therapy and is even considering returning to the tennis courts soon.

The Russian reached a career-high ranking of No.20 in February 2011, but stopped playing after the Rome tournament in May due to the form of cancer. If everything goes well, the 22-year-old will slowly resume practicing in February in Florida and her coach is hopeful that she will play French Open tune-ups and the claycourt Grand Slam.

This favorable development of situation is still depending on a lot of factors, but at least it sounds promising. I'm really glad that Alisa has prospects of playing among the big names again, where she belongs. (photo: © Neal Trousdale)
