by ATP Staff|
Ross Hutchins announced on Twitter on Monday that he is now in remission from cancer. The 28-year-old Briton was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in December, and spent the first six months of the year undergoing chemotherapy at the Royal Marsden in London.
Hutchins (@RoscoHutchins) tweeted, “Was a big day today,met my Oncologist and I am now in remission :) So grateful to fantastic Professor Cunningham and his team @royalmarsden”
Wimbledon champion Andy Murray and Hutchins’ doubles partner, Colin Fleming, both posted their delight at the news on Twitter.
@andy_murray: “Just got some of the best news I've heard in a long long time... Great start to the day! Back training properly today on hard courts”
@colin_fleming: “Starting our US hard court summer today...if the storms allow us. Playing Donskoy+Istomin and playing with a smile. #goodtimes”
In June at The Queen’s Club, Murray and Tomas Berdych joined Tim Henman and Ivan Lendl in a charity match, Rally Against Cancer, which has raised more than £177,000 for the Royal Marsden. Murray also wore a patch on his shirt during Wimbledon to support the London hospital.
