Kleybanova back for another try

Russia’s Alisa Kleybanova,  diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma six years ago, has made several short-lived comeback attempts.

After another year away, she’s back this month in a series of ITFs in Thailand.

Kleybanova reached the final the last week of July as a wild card. She lost 6-3 in the third to Luksika Kumkhum. She qualified and reached the semis the following week, losing to Sara Tomic. This week, she won two qualifying matches but lost in the first round of the main draw.

Here she is talking about it. She looks great.
