Serena Williams’ recent post reflects the bond girls in the family share

Becker, though, has his eye on another of his compatriots, the 2016 Melbourne Park champion Angelique Kerber. So at least we know she's human.

Williams gave birth to Olympia in September - meaning she was already eight weeks pregnant when she won the Australian Open - and has been on the sidelines ever since. ACOG also recommends placing inflatable compression devices on a woman's legs during a C-section to prevent clots, and leaving them in place until the woman can walk again.

Monifa Bandele, vice president and chief partnership and equity officer at MomsRising, a political organization that works to end discrimination against mothers and women, says said that she appreciates Serena Williams for opening up about her experience, which has drawn more attention to this issue.

Despite irking her critics with a tendency to paint herself as a victim, the 30-year-old has been welcomed back with open arms by fans and tournament organisers alike.

Her daughter Alexis Olympia was born by emergency Cesarean as her heart rate was low during contractions. The surgery was fine, and Olympia's dad was standing by to cut the cord. She also mentioned how fortunate Olympia is to have such fantastic aunts and grandmother. "And then everything went bad".

The next day, while recovering in the hospital, Serena suddenly felt short of breath. Knowing her own history, Serena immediately believed she was having a pulmonary embolism. But when she tried to tell a nurse that she needed a CT scan with contrast and heparin (a blood thinner), she says the nurse told her that maybe her pain medication was making her confused.

Her absence clears the way for a challenger to make their name, although Serena will surely be disappointed at missing out on an opportunity to re-write another record. Though the doctors were initially skeptical of Williams' self-diagnosis, she was indeed correct about her condition.

Serena told Vogue, "I was like, a Doppler?" "I don't need the money or the titles or the prestige", said Williams. The ultrasound revealed nothing, but she was sent for a CT scan.

Several small blood clots were found in her lungs, and Williams was put on an anticoagulant. Serena was started on an IV of heparin right away.

More complications followed as intense coughing caused her C-section wound to open and a hematoma was found in her abdomen. I'd like her to have a normal life.

Similarly, the tennis champion has always encouraged the importance of body positivity and self-acceptance, insisting "That you can be whatever size you are and you can be lovely inside and out". And while her story is indeed scary, it's not uncommon.

Simona Halep enters the first major of the year as the world's top-ranked player which, after years of Serena dominance, chopped and changed on a regular basis last season.
