Career reviewEdit

Between August 2015 and May 2017, she did not play in any ITF Circuit tournament. She was sidelined during this time because she was diagnosed with stage-II-skin cancer (melanoma) and severe knee injuries that caused her to be out for a total of three years and two months. She also was diagnosed with mononucleosis.[4]
