L’ex tennista britannica Elena Baltacha è morta di cancro, aveva 30 anni
Former British number one tennis player Elena Baltacha has died of liver cancer, aged 30. Born in Ukraine and raised in Scotland, Baltacha revealed she had the illness in March. Baltacha, who was British number one for nearly three years, retired from the sport in 2013.
“We are heartbroken beyond words at the loss of our beautiful, talented and determined Bally,” said husband Nino Severino.
Baltacha learned she had liver cancer in mid-January 2014, two months after retiring from professional tennis and only a few weeks after marrying.
