Tennis Hall of Famer Chris Evert says her cancer has returned and she will not broadcast the Australian Open for ESPN while undergoing treatment. The 68-year-old Evert was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer in December of 2021. She says in a statement released by ESPN that her cancer recurrence was caught early. She says the cancerous cells have been removed and she has started chemotherapy. Evert is an 18-time Grand Slam singles champion. The Australian Open begins next month.
