Serena Williams suffered from blood clots, hematoma after baby

Serena Williams determined to pass 24 grand slam titles

Serena Williams' daughter may only be 4 months old - but she already landed her first Vogue cover! Listen to Dr Williams!'

"That was an incredible feeling", Serena recalls.

The nurse believed that medications might have befuddled Williams, Vogue says, but a doctor arrived - only to perform an ultrasound, and not the CT scan that Williams believed she needed.

The post for Vogue magazine comes after her recent revelation that she was forced to endure multiple surgeries in days after giving birth in their cover story.

That drama kicked off a trainwreck of medical problems as coughing fits opened up her C-section wound and blood thinners led to a hematoma in her abdomen. The day after her daughter was born she felt a shortness of breath and feared she was having a pulmonary embolism (that's medical speak for when arteries in the lungs become blocked by a blood clot).

Doctors found several blood clots had settled in her lungs. She then required a filter to be inserted into a major vein, in order to prevent more clots. The entire experience left her bedridden for the first six weeks of motherhood. Her husband, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian, added that, "the feeling of not being able to help made [motherhood] even harder". "Now that I'm 36 and I look at my baby, I remember that this was also one of my goals when I was little, before tennis took over, when I was still kind of a normal girl who played with dolls".

She went on to reveal, "I've broken down I don't know how many times".

She now has her sights set on a March return at Indian Wells, and fired a warning shot to her rivals.

On December 30, she lost an exhibition match against Jelena Ostapenko, the 2017 French Open champion, at the World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi.

'Or I'll get angry about the crying, then sad about being angry, and then guilty, like, "Why do I feel so sad when I have a handsome baby?" If there's no clear number one, it's like, yeah, I can get my spot back. I want them, but I don't need them. The two last faced each other at the Australian Open final previous year, which Serena won.

"Sometimes I get really down and feel like, 'Man, I can't do this.' It's that same negative attitude I have on the court sometimes".
