WASHINGTON, July 8 (RIA Novosti) – Alisa Kleybanova, the Russian tennis player whose career was derailed by a battle with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the SP Gold River Challenger professional women's tennis tournament in California last week, losing to Ivana Lisjak of Croatia 0-6, 6-2, 7-6.

At her peak ranked 20th in the world, Kleybanova, 23, had earned more than $20 million and won two Women’s Tennis Association titles when diagnosed with cancer in late 2011. She was forced to stop playing for two years, and The Gold River Challenger was her third tournament in 2013 as she attempts her comeback.

Kleybanova won the singles trophy in the first tournament of her comeback in May in Pennsylvania, and was runner-up in her second tournament in Buffalo, New York in June.
