Serena Williams absence gives chance for a new superstar to emerge

Serena Williams absence gives chance for a new superstar to emerge”

Her training schedule did not permit time for an interview with CNN.Despite her obvious strength and good health, the world champion tennis player has a history of blood clots. At one point, Alexis Olympia's heart rate dipped so low that doctors needed to perform an emergency C-section. When doctors finally gave her a CT scan, it revealed that she did indeed have blood clots in her lungs, causing the shortness of breath.

Over the following six days, Serena Williams' c-section wound popped open from the intense coughing spells caused by the pulmonary embolism.

Serena Williams is delaying her comeback to the 2018 WTA Tour.

Williams ultimately needed to have a filter placed in a major vein to stop blood clots from going to her lungs.

Tennis star Serena Williams has revealed that she experienced potentially life-threatening blood clots after giving birth to her daughter a year ago. "I was happy to change diapers", Ohanian, who married Williams in November, told Vogue, adding that the hardest part was "not being able to help". "I was like, listen to Dr. Williams!"

Following her surgeries, she was forced to spend her first six weeks of motherhood unable to get out of bed.

Williams left Melbourne a year ago with a 23rd grand slam title under her belt but soon hung up her racket for the remainder of 2017 upon discovering she was eight weeks pregnant at the time of her triumph. It is not an exaggeration to state that if Williams hadn't been famous, and especially if she were in a hospital in the inner city or a rural area, she may never have returned home with her daughter. It's that same negative attitude I have on the court sometimes.

She said: "That was an awesome feeling (being handed her daughter)".

Boris Becker, who knows a bit about both winning grand slams and star appeal, believes the landscape at the top of the women's game is just too confused at the moment.

Sometimes I get really down and feel like, "Man, I can't do this". Williams was able to discuss the trauma of her birth experience from the safety of her living room, but many other American women, especially those also of color, nearly certainly would not have had the same experience.

With daughter Olympia now brought into the world, Williams has opted to extend her break, saying: "Although I am super close, I'm not where I want to be".

"Knowing I've got this lovely baby to go home to makes me feel like I don't have to play another match". Venus last won a Slam in 2008 but she enjoyed a renaissance past year, when she reached two Grand Slam finals and returned to the world top five. "I'm not asking you to like it", she explained in a frank conversation about body critics. "I want to teach her that there are no limits".

And now, in her recent post, the 23-time Grand Slam champion shared a picture of her sisters from the Vogue magazine shoot, along with her new-born daughter, and wrote how women in her family are strong and connected with each other. Williams now has 23, but she is aware of what's in the record books and wants to win 25.
