American tennis pro Melanie Oudin is home after a procedure for a heart condition.
The 2009 U.S. Open quarterfinalist wrote on Twitter on Thursday that her trip to an Atlanta hospital "went extremely well."
She added: "Just wanted to thank you guys for your kind thoughts and prayers. It means a lot to me."
Oudin, from Marietta, Georgia, also posted a photo of herself in a hospital bed.
The 23-year-old Oudin said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday that she had been experiencing occasional "episodes" of an accelerated heartbeat, usually during — or right after — matches. She said she was diagnosed last month with a form of arrhythmia.
