Serena Williams in action at the recent World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi
11 January, 2018, 09:30
Williams is on the mend and played in her first match since giving birth on December 30, though she lost the exhibition match 6-2 to 2017 French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko in Abu Dhabi.
Now, six days after giving birth, Williams had to have a filter inserted in a vein to make sure no more clots broke off and made way to her lungs.
Serena, who last week withdrew from the Grand Slam in Melbourne, said: 'Sometimes I get really down and feel like, "I can't do this".
Williams - who has withdrawn from next week's Australian Open as she attempts to return to her best form - revealed she had blood clots after baby Alexis Olympia was delivered on September 1 a year ago via emergency C-Section.
Williams, 36, played an exhibition match in Abu Dhabi in late December but pulled out of this month's Australian Open, saying she was "super close" but not yet playing at the level needed to compete. She was returned to...
She said that while she was pleased with her recovery and her progress, she was "not where I personally want to be". I'm well aware of the record books, unfortunately. "When I'm too anxious, I lose matches, and I feel like a lot of that anxiety disappeared when Olympia was born". It will be cool to see if I get there again, to what I call my spot-where I feel I belong. She says now that she has her daughter, she doesn't need titles and money. "That's a different feeling for me".
As Williams recalled, her doctors were forced to perform an emergency C-section after her heart rate began to plummet during her contractions.
"And then everything went bad", the star said in the interview. A day after, Williams began experiencing symptoms that were familiar to her and after explaining her history of blood clots was given the proper medication that wasn't initially administered to her.
Williams was put on blood thinners, but she was not out of the woods yet. Coughing also caused her C-section wound to open, leading to more surgeries.
Williams was able to return home after a couple of weeks but spent her time in bed as she recovered.
Serena also said in the interview she hopes her daughter has her drive and pursues whatever she wants.
"I've been playing tennis since before my memories started", Serena said. "I hate playing her because she gets this look on her face where she just looks sad if she's losing".
"I think that's when the turning point came in our rivalry, when I stopped looking at her", she said.
