Venus Williams plans to make her comeback in an exhibition match against her sister Serena in Colombia on Wednesday after being forced to pull out of the U.S. Open because of an immune system disease.

Venus told the Gazzetta dello Sport that she has changed her diet to fill it with vegetables after being diagnosed with Sjogren's syndrome, which can cause fatigue and joint pain.

The Williams sisters will play Italian pair Francesca Schiavone and Flavia Pennetta in another exhibition match in Milan on December 3.

The 103rd-ranked Venus told the Gazzetta, which is sponsoring the Milan match, that she's practicing and training in the gym.
