She does and has had surgery for it.

Danielle Collins reveals diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis

The American is determined to manage the condition and continue her tennis career following treatment.

By WTA Staff


Danielle Collins has begun treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic inflammatory condition that causes pain and swelling in the body's joints.

The American, 25, who is the WTA World No.33 and reached the Australian Open semifinals in January, becomes the second leading WTA player to be diagnosed with RA in the past two seasons following Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki.

“I have not been feeling all that great for quite some time, but it has been somewhat of a relief and completely validating to understand the cause behind my pain,” Collins wrote on Instagram.

“As I have started treatment, I am looking forward to embracing this next challenge in life. Without a doubt, every healthy day is a gift and I am one hundred percent committed to keeping strong and continuing to battle on and off the tennis court.

“While I don’t know for sure what my journey to recovery will be, I do know that I feel really positive about getting back on the court.

“I feel like now I can get better and address my body’s needs in fighting this disease.”

Rheumatoid Arthritis, I can't imagine having that even if you weren't a Professional Tennis player. Being a Tennis player and having it has to be just absolutely awful.

Though not the same auto-immune disease as Venus, I wonder if those 2 have ever spoken to each other about how they manage their respective diseases and share things that have helped them with their conditions.

Not an injury. But Zverev has revealed that he suffers from Diabetes Type I, since childhood.
He has started a foundation for youth diabetes.
He is puzzling. We know of the bad parts; and then he does this. I am wondering if all the new generation are a bit more complex that we give them credit for.

He's only publicly admitting what he kinda sorta denied for a long time. Ben revealed this a few years ago and while he didn't deny it he didn't confirm it either.

I missed that announcement. Still, good for him to put money into such a foundation.

Poor Daria Saville tore her ACL in her match against Osaka, so she's probably done for the rest of the year. She was playing well and recovering her ranking nicely from her previous injury.

An torn ACL means she will be done for the year, AND a long stretch of next. A really hard rehab process. Indeed, very bad news for her.
