Venus Williams recently disclosed that she was diagnosed with the autoimmune disorder called SjÃ¶gren's syndrome. This disease causes fatigue and joint pain. It will certainly affect the 31-year-old athlete's future in the sport she loves. Now, her sister Serena is opening up about her famous sibling's health and telling a national magazine, "She's doing better," and "...staying positive."
Venus Williams's condition is reportedly improving, and that's great news for the tennis pro. Fortunately, she does have other interests, like fashion, to keep her busy. She is well-known for her daring ensembles on the tennis court, but she is also a fashion designer who holds a degree from Fort Lauderdale School of Fashion and Design.
Hopefully, Venus Williams will use her time away from the tennis court to revisit the world of fashion with an exciting new line of apparel, handbags, or accessories. Her sister Serena has one foot in the realm of style as well, so there is no doubt she would be supportive of her sibling.
Sadly, Serena Williams has been battling health problems of her own since long before her older sister shared news of her condition. A year ago, she was treated for a blood clot in her lung; that pulmonary embolism took her out of the field of tennis for approximately 12 months. She just recently returned to the game only to have her sister withdraw from the U.S. Open.
