Just a month after announcing that she had recovered from cancer, Carla Suarez Navarro is sharing amazing news that she’ll compete at the 2021 French Open.
The 2020 season was supposed to be the 32-year-old Suarez Navarro’s last one before retirement, but the pandemic and Hodgkin lymphoma diagnosis ruined her plans, so the Spaniard decided to get back to tennis this year in order to close her career properly, on the court.
As the Spanish tennis federation reports, the two-time French Open quarterfinalist traveled to Paris on Tuesday for her return to competition after 17 months away from the Tour:
I have been working these last few months to give myself the opportunity to compete one last time in Paris. I am looking forward to jumping on to the court and feeling again how special this tournament has always been for me.
