(CNN) - Teenage tennis Phenom Victoria Duval reveals she's battling cancer.

The Duval, 18, announced she has Hodgkin’s lymphoma in a Facebook post.

The American teen says she found out about the diagnosis last week during Wimbledon but decided to continue playing.

She lost in the second round to Switzerland’s Belinda Bencic.

Duval will undergo treatment for the illness.

Duval stormed onto the tennis scene last year at the U.S. Open.

In a stunning defeat she beat 2011 U.S. Open champ Samantha Stosur in the first round.
