Hopeful and prayerful that inspite of withdrawing from the 2012 Australian Open for health reasons, Venus will return to the WTA  Tour this year!  How wonderful it has been seeing her play during several exhibitions this past Winter.  The Tennis World doubted this young African American woman would ever be a contender, much less a five time Wimbledon winner!  So I for one have no doubt that if it can be done, Venus Williams will beat Sjogren’s Syndrome!  Prolonging her absence from the tennis tour (since the first round of the 2011 US Open) because of an autoimmune disease that can cause fatigue and joint pain.

Great perspective on how the absence of the Williams Sisters will impact Women’s Tennis and Tennis in general at http://espn.go.com/espnw/commentary/7451289/tennis-needs-venus-serena-williams
