Kleybanova recovering, resumes training

by: Matt Cronin February 06, 2012

Alisa Kleybanova has finished her chemotherapy and has begun off-court training. The former world No. 20 still has to pass one more major medical test before she is allowed to resume on-court training. In the summer of 2011, Kleybanova revealed that she was suffering from Hodgkin's lymphoma. The 22-year-old told TENNIS.com that if she does pass the test, she plans on coming to the United States to train in warm weather.—Matt Cronin
