Baby Olympia's heart rate had dropped dangerously low during labor, leading to an emergency C-section to deliver her. Her previous blood clot experiences have been equally dramatic. "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", she explained.

And Serena Williams truly is a super hero. Sure enough, the scan revealed several small blood clots were in her lungs.

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.

Not wanting to worry her visiting mother, Williams stepped into the hall and flagged a nearby nurse, insisting that she needed an IV with heparin, a blood thinner, and a CT scan to check for clots.

Another operation allowed a surgeon to insert a filter into a major vein to prevent more clots from dislodging and traveling to Williams' lungs.

Williams went home a week later, but was unable to leave her bed for six weeks.

The tennis superstar and her Reddit co-founder partner Alexis Ohanian welcomed Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. in September (17), with the couple marrying two months later in New Orleans. "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".

"No one talks about the low moments-the pressure you feel, the incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry", Williams said. "Knowing I've got this lovely baby to go home to makes me feel like I don't have to play another match".

Williams is on the mend and played in her first match since giving birth December 30. She said she plans on returning to the court for the Indian Wells in March. I want them, but I don't need them. "If there's no clear number one, it's like, yeah, I can get my spot back", she asserts.

Williams initially wanted to return to the Australian Open later this month - which she won a year ago while pregnant - but withdrew last 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".
