I have been diagnosed with stage 1 throat cancer. The prognosis is good and I will start her treatment this month. The cancer type is HPV and this particular type responds really well to treatment. I noticed an enlarged lymph node in her neck during the WTA finals in Fort Worth. When it didn’t go down, a biopsy was performed, the results came back as Stage 1 throat cancer. At the same time as I was undergoing the tests for the throat, a suspicious form was found in her breast, which was subsequently diagnosed as cancer, completely unrelated to the throat cancer. Both these cancers are in their early stages with great outcomes. I won’t be covering the Aussie Open for Tennis Channel from their studio but hope to be able to join in from time to time by zoom.


Bitter rivals. Beloved friends. Survivors.

Bitter rivals. Beloved friends. Survivors.

Tennis icons Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova met as teenagers, forged one of the greatest rivalries in sports and then became close friends. After 50 years,

Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova understand each other like no one else can. When cancer came, they both knew where to turn.

Evonne Goolagong Arena. Why not?

When airports, buildings, streets or stadiums are named after particular people, it is done, or at least should be done, to honour exceptional human beings, our heroes.
