Breaking Back

One great story to come out of the Australian Open in Melbourne was the return of British player Ross Hutchins, who won his first round doubles match yesterday.

Just over a year ago Hutchins was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a cancer of the white blood cells and as a result under went Chemotherapy. The treatment although completed can take almost up to a year to leave your body and frequently leaves patients lethargic and with low energy levels, so to be back playing top  level tennis within a year is a remarkable achievement.

Hutchins and his partner Colin Fleming won their match and he is reported to have said “It’s an amazing feeling to be back.”
