Even though he has successfully battled Hodgkin’s lymphoma and will return to the ATP in 2014, Ross Hutchins says that watching Andy Murray win Wimbledon meant more than overcoming cancer.

Hutchins underwent 12 chemotherapy sessions this year. After winning the 2013 Queen’s Club tournament, Murray donated his $118,000 dollar prize to the Royal Marsden hospital where Hutchins was being treated. Hutchins said that was great day for him, but not as big as when his best friend Murray won Wimbledon three weeks later.

“It was amazing to become healthy but Andy winning Wimbledon was the most incredible moment of the year,” he told The Daily Record. “Cancer and the whole treatment, you forget about it. None of that is as important as Andy winning Wimbledon.”

Hutchins will make his comeback at the Brisbane International in two weeks, teaming with his former partner, Colin Fleming

“We want to be the No.1 team in the world,” Hutchins said. “We feel like we have the game plan and we’re still relatively young in the game of doubles.”
