The piece details Williams' recovery from her emergency C-section, and complications caused by her previous struggles with blood clots: feeling short of breath, and recognising the potential impact of skipping her usual anticoagulants due to the surgery, Williams advised hospital staff she needed a CT scan, ASAP.

"And then everything went bad", the star said in the interview. A CT scan showed that she had several small clots in her lungs and she was put on a drip. "Kerber can come back, I think she had a good winter training camp and did well at the Hopman Cup".

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.

The trademark running game over the past two seasons has withered, a span that coincides with the departure of Marshawn Lynch . Bevell was the offensive coordinator and oversaw the passing game and Cable the offensive line coach and run game coordinator.

The day after giving birth, Serena, 36, believed she was suffering from a pulmonary embolism - a blood clot in the lung - something she has previously experienced. As the baby is named after her father, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, Williams has taken to calling her daughter by her middle name, Olympia.

Only sister Serena prevented Venus from winning an 11th Grand Slam singles title in last year's all-Williams Melbourne final. It is that same negative attitude I have on the court sometimes. I guess that's just who I am.

"No one talks about the low moments - the pressure you feel, the incredible letdown every time you hear the baby cry", Williams said.

'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 handsome baby?" She had targeted the Australian Open, which she won a year ago while only a few weeks pregnant, but that did not pan out after an exhibition match loss to Jelena Ostapenko last week.

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.

"I think having a baby might help".

Serena explained, "When I'm too anxious I lose matches, and I feel like a lot of that anxiety disappeared when Olympia was born".

"Knowing I've got this lovely baby to go home to makes me feel like I don't have to play another match". She says now that she has her daughter, she doesn't need titles and money.

"After competing in Abu Dhabi I realized that although I am super close, I'm not where I personally want to be", she said in a statement on Snapchat.
