Venus Looking Forward to Injury-Free Season

Venus Williams says she's looking forward to a healthy season for herself and sister Serena after an injury-plagued year for the siblings.

The Williams sisters, who have 20 Grand Slam singles titles between them, both saw their years cut short in 2010. Serena missed the rest of the season after winning Wimbledon in July, following a cut on her right foot. She is still recovering and will miss the Australian Open, which starts on Jan. 17.

After losing at Wimbledon, Venus only played at the U.S. Open, bothered by a bad left knee.

Venus, however, said Monday in Hong Kong, where she is competing in an exhibition tournament, "hopefully we'll (Serena and I) reunite as a doubles team pretty soon," adding her younger sister is in "very good spirits."
