Venus: 'Absolutely' will return from illness
Venus Williams says she 'absolutely' plans to return to tennis despite autoimmune disease
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Venus Williams says she "absolutely" plans to return to tennis after she withdrew from the U.S. Open because of a recently diagnosed autoimmune disease.

Williams revealed Wednesday after pulling out of her second-round match that she had Sjogren's syndrome, which can cause fatigue and joint pain.

In an interview Thursday with ABC's "Good Morning America," Williams said: "I think the best thing that could have happened for me this summer was to feel worse so I could feel better."



Williams says she's had problems with stamina for several years, which she now believes were caused by Sjogren's. It wasn't until she developed more concrete symptoms in the last few months that she was diagnosed.

Williams says: "I feel like I can get better and move on."
