Serena Williams reveals she had blood clots after giving birth

Serena Williams reveals she had blood clots after giving birth

Williams, who had to stop taking her anticoagulant medications leading up the delivery, was right, and had indeed developed several clots in her lungs.

But that's not to be confused with the idea that Serena is anxious about reclaiming her spot as number one when she returns.

"I've broken down I don't know how many times. 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 lovely baby?' The emotions are insane". I don't play to be the second best or the third best.

However, the days and weeks following the September birth of daughter Alexis Olympia was hard, according to a recent Vogue magazine interview with the tennis champion. "All Vogue covers are special but to share this one with my attractive daughter Olympia Ohanian also the youngest Vogue cover star makes it moment I will never forget". Williams said in the Vogue story that she has her sights on getting to 25 major titles, which would break the all-time record of 24 held by Margaret Court.

At the same time, having a child has helped her feel less stressed about her athletic performance. I don't need the money or the titles or the prestige. "That's a different feeling for me".

Williams was put on blood thinners, but she wasn't out of the woods yet. Mentioning the names of Caroline Wozniacki, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Angelique Kerber, Williams said that it's important for competitors to genuinely care for and respect one another. With that being said, and even though I am disappointed about it, I've decided not to compete in the Australian Open this year. That's kind of the mark I want to leave.

Serena appears in a red Versace dress while holding the baby, who is wearing a white bodysuit and touching her mom while making a fist nearly victoriously with her other hand. Williams is skipping this year's Australian Open, which begins next week.

"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".

The first moments of motherhood were "amazing" but "then everything went bad", she told the magazine. "I think that's when the turning point came in our rivalry, when I stopped looking at her".
