Another young person taken by cancer.

Very sad, apparently she retired from tennis in January and had recently married her coach.

Such a tragedy.
I saw her win a pre Wimbledon tournament in Nottingham a couple of years ago, a very graceful young lady.
Just looking where and when she was born (1984) and then think of Chernobyl (1986)
Whatever................. may she RIP bless her.

RIP indeed.

Friend of mine aged 33 thought he had an ulcer in September - we were at the last Test Match of the season at the Oval - but was diagnosed with liver cancer and we buried him before Christmas the same year.

Liver cancer is, sadly, very fast.
