Danielle Collins diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis




Cannot imagine how difficult it is to play tennis with an illness as debilitating as this.

Quote:
There have been a lot of exciting moments during my 2019 season. I am proud to have made a career high ranking of 23 in the world and the semi finals of the Australian Open, earlier this season. There have also been tough moments, but I am grateful for another year of growth. Today is a tough day for me as I announce my recent diagnosis with Rheumatoid arthritis. 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. I am certainly not the first person who has been diagnosed with a chronic illness, and I really feel for all of the people out there who are struggling. 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. ������ #rheumatoidarthritis #autoimmunedisease #ivegotthis

Re: Danielle Collins diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis

Its awful. I had thought RA was an old people problem until last year, had never met anyone who has it.
But it hurts a tennis career. Hoprfully she will get the right treatment and live a long healthy life

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Danielle Collins diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis

Two is a trend.

Why are pro tennis women in their 20's getting this? Collins and Wozniaki. Is it due to overplaying at young ages? Pounding on the body of the tour? This is a concerning trend for me

Wozniacki played hundreds more matches than Collins at the age of 25.

This is great for Naomi, Kiki, and Al Nabhani (who should really be contesting club matches against Alexandra Stevenson), so everybody wins!
Mladenovic wins 63 63

Re: Danielle Collins diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis

I wonder if she will start with the Wozniacki "issues" anytime she loses.....funny enough, it says she's had this for a long time, yet she's been soldering on the past 2 seasons without extreme excuses or complaints.

Re: Danielle Collins diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis

Danielle

Horrible news. And this explains her bad results in last months.
She began the year so strong with the Aus Open SF. And many early exits after.
Edit: I just looked at her results this year. She had many tough draws and only few bad losses.

I wish her the best. A shame she has this bad illness. And so young too ...

Re: Danielle Collins diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis

Not sure I believe this or Caro's or Mardys mental illness depression heart issues, or Vee's Sjogren's syndrome. These supposed illnesses give the player another platform and more media exposure. Sorry for being skeptical, but Mardy Fish is the most normal dude in sports. And Caro is just getting old and fading, she's still a good player but not great. These handy illnesses create sympathy from public and sponsors to excuse fading results. Remember, we live in a world of Fake News, where Malcom X said the media has the power to make the guilty look innocent and the innocent look guilty.

Re: Danielle Collins diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis

This actually sucks big time.

Believe it or not, Collins was/is a threat in majors.

Brings her best level in slams for sure, strong mentally and the game to go with it.

Sucks that this illness throws everything up in the air, must be awful to deal with.

Tsitsipas & Sakkari outed.

Re: Danielle Collins diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis

Well that's a bumper for one so freshly out of college ready to make big bucks on the pro tour, after all she said she doesn't come from money. Good thing she has that journalism degree to fall back on.
