Chris Evert WTA legend

WTA legend Chris Evert ‘thankful and relieved’ to complete chemotherapy treatment

Chris Evert has now completed her six sessions of chemotherapy as the WTA Hall of Famer continues her fight with ovarian cancer. 

The former WTA world number one was diagnosed with stage 1C ovarian cancer in December of last year before making the news public in January.

After sharing much of her journey on social media, Evert provided another big public update to announce that she has now completed chemotherapy.

She captioned one tweet of her accompanied by ex-husband Andy Mill: “Right before the ringing of the bell signifying the end of my six chemos.”

Another tweet minutes later provided a video of the bell-ringing moment to celebrate Evert’s last chemo treatment.

Well-wishers on the post included contemporary and rival Pam Shriver and current WTA top 10 pro Garbine Muguruza.

Shriver commented: “Happy tears in Los Angeles, congratulations.”

Meanwhile, Muguruza said tagging Evert: “Stay strong Chris!” Tagging Evert.

Unfortunately, Evert is no stranger to the tribulations of those that face a cancer diagnosis.

Back in 2020 her younger sister Jeanne Evert Dubin died of ovarian cancer aged 62 after the disease spread before it was detected.

From the posts Evert seems optimistic about being cancer-free in the future.

She told the medical workers as she left the facility: “Love you, thank you so much.

She then joked: “We hope we don’t see you again!”
