Serena Williams Announces Comeback Is Like No Other Comeback
'A lot of people die from it because you don't recognize
it. I couldn't breathe. I honestly just thought I was out of shape and
needed to get on the treadmill or hit the elliptical (cross-trainer).
Serena Williams has returned to tennis. Serena announced at the a press conference during the Aegon International tennis tournament that this comeback is different following everything she's been through to get there. Some excerpts from conference below;
'It has been a totally different road because I've had some serious health problems and I was literally on my deathbed at one point.
'The doctors said that I had several clots bilaterally in both lungs. They said if they had caught it two days later, it could have been a lot more serious, possibly career-ending.
'It was my physio who forced me to go to the hospital whereas I was
actually on the way to a party. She said, "No, you need to go to the
hospital". I'm glad I didn't go to that party.'
'After it was all over, there were a few days when I didn't get out of
bed. So much had happened to me and I couldn't understand why. I was
thinking, "Just what didn't I do or what did I do to deserve this?" '
'I'm just excited to be here and playing. I hope tennis has missed Venus and me.
'If tennis has missed us half as much as we've missed tennis, we're in a
good place. This is a comeback that's totally different from any other
Welcomeback Serena Williams!
