Former Top 20 player Alisa Kleybanova says she will attempt to return to the tour in either February or March of 2013. After battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma for 10 months, Kleybanova attempted a comeback earlier this year in Miami, beating Johanna Larsson before falling to Maria Kirilenko. She did not play another WTA tournament after that.

“I’m completely healthy, but it’s not easy to play, because I [can’t complete] tough training [sessions] still,” the 23-year-old told TENNIS.com. “I can’t train every day yet, but slowly I’m getting better and better!”
