Great Britain's Ross Hutchins is ready to return to the pro tour after battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The 28-year-old was diagnosed with the cancer about a year ago. According to the Lawn Tennis Association, Hutchins will soon travel to Spain with the Great Britain's men's elite squad and train at the La Manga Club resort. His former doubles partner, Colin Fleming, will also make the trip.

“With the help of my family and friends, being able to pick up my tennis racquet and play again after my cancer fight was an amazing feeling and one of my proudest moments,” Hutchins said.
