(AP) – Former tennis star Chris Evert has been diagnosed with an early stage of ovarian cancer.
Evert, 67, revealed the illness in a story posted Friday on ESPN.com; she is an on-air announcer for ESPN.
She said she learned of the cancer last month and began chemotherapy treatments this week.
Messages of support immediately appeared on social media, with Rafael Nadal tweeting: “Chris, all the best to you and get well! And I am sure I’ll see you very soon!”
