Serena Williams was bed-ridden for six weeks after giving birth

Serena Williams was bed-ridden for six weeks after giving birth

Before the birth of her daughter, Williams told Vogue magazine last August about her "outrageous plan" to defend her title at the 2018 Australian Open in January - the tournament she won previous year while nine-weeks pregnant (although no one knew at the time).

Williams' husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, is based there, while she lives in Florida.

In an interview with Vogue, where Williams and Olympia appear on the February cover together and Williams reveals the health scare she had after having an emergency C-section, she talks about how she has no intentions of grooming her daughter to follow in her very prestigious footsteps on the tennis court. They discovered tiny blood clots on her lungs and she was quickly given the medication.

She was correct; after finding blood clots in her lungs, the doctors put her on a drip, but the coughing from the pulmonary embolism caused her caesarean scar to open up.

She also had to undergo surgery to have a filter inserted into a major vein to prevent further clots, and was forced to spend six weeks in bed after returning home from the hospital a week after the birth.

She told Vogue she recalls telling the medical team: "I was like, a Doppler?" The delivery went great, but it was afterwards with Williams herself when everything took a turn for the worse.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Gary Brazil or Arsène Wenger? "This has got to be something we build on". Attacking the goalkeeper for the tweet, Arsenal supporters wrote, Halley wrote, "Your team is losing for god sake".

Back in August, Federer spoke to For The Win magazine about Williams' break from tennis: "At this stage of her career, she should do whatever she wants to do. there's no right or wrong for her, which is the best position you can be in ever as a professional athlete. I guess that's just who I am", Serena said. It's that same negative attitude I have on the court sometimes.

"Maybe this goes without saying, but it needs to be said in a powerful way: I absolutely want more Grand Slams", she said.

"Sometimes I get really down and feel like, man, I can't do this", said Williams.

"Knowing I've got this attractive baby to go home to makes me feel like I don't have to play another match".

Williams added, however, that being a mother has always been one of her goals. She's responsible for another life now, ' said Oracene, who is urging her daughter to be a strict parent. "I want to teach her that there are no limits".

She is quick to note however that it is easier for them not havinbg to carry and then deliver the actual child.
