Venus Williams – the comeback starts next week!

With word of new, expansive drug tunnels found along the border with California and Mexico, it’s encouraging to hear that even Venus Williams is ready to take on the cartels. She’ll be in Columbia next week for an exhibition with sister Serena, followed by a trip to Milan to take-on Flavia Pannetta and Francesca Schiavone…

With her ranking down to 103 in the world – she’ll need to play and win as much tennis as possible to qualify for the U.S. Olympic Team…and plans on starting her competitive season with the first tournament of the year in Aukland come early January.

We’ll see if that new veggie diet has helped her body control the Sjogren’s syndrome, diagnosed this year at the U.S. Open.
