VENUS REFLECTS ON TENNIS, LIFE AND DISEASE
Mon, 07 Nov 2011 08:39 AM EST

Venus Williams’ serious health scare at one time had many tennis observers speculate that Venus was finished. She withdrew from the U.S. Open, revealing that she had been diagnosed with Sjogren’s syndrome, an autoimmune condition that caused her intense joint pain, a lack of stamina and, at times, overwhelming fatigue.

Venus had announced that she would return to tennis. Later, she told the press that it would take three to six months for the medication to fully engage, which probably means she’s done for the season. Venus is hopeful that Sjogren’s can be kept in check with medication. NFL spreads

Said Venus: “Sjogren’s is something you live with your whole life. The good news for me is now I know what’s happening after spending years not knowing. I feel like I can get better and move on.”

Venus has been a powerful champion in tennis and a positive role model to young women that want to follow in her path. She has handled her illness with grace and class. She has become one of the game’s elder statesmen and will definitely go into the hall of fame when her career is done.

Unfortunately, reports of her demise are greatly exaggerated. Venus has a lot of great tennis ahead of her and this hiatus will give her time to prepare for her return.

She has been ready for retirement when that fateful day occurs. Venus and her sister have been quite active in designing and promoting tennis apparel. They have both saved and invested their money.
