Italy's Billie Jean King Cup
non-playing captain Tathiana Garbin had successful surgery two
days ago in her battle against a rare form of cancer, she wrote
on Instagram Friday.
Garbin steered the Azzurre to the final of the former Fed Cup earlier this month but they lost to Canada in Seville.
"The surgery went well thanks to the professionalism and expertise of Prof. Lippolis and his entire medical team, to whom my deepest gratitude goes. Thank you all for your messages of support and closeness. See you soon," was Garbin's Instagram message.
