It’s as if Wimbledon finalist Serena Williams never left the game at all

Wimbledon 2018 – According to the latest report, Serena Williams is now into the Wimbledon final. The 23-time Grand Slam champion has accomplished so far this tournament. Just 10 months ago, Williams suffered life-threatening pulmonary embolisms after delivering her daughter, Olympia, via C-section. She remained on bed rest for several weeks afterward, unable to train until the end of the year.

“This was not inevitable for me,” Williams said after the match, which took 70 minutes to complete. “I had a difficult birth, multiple surgeries, I almost didn’t make it. There was a time I could barely walk to my mailbox. It’s such a pleasure and a joy [to be in the final] because less than a year ago, I was going through so much”.

Goerges, who being hit 20 winners and managed a break against Williams in the second set, said “she was honored Williams brought her A-game to Centre Court. I think that she steps up her game”.

“Believe me, I know she wants to go out there and win. So do I,” Williams said. “I think it will be just like the last final; it will be really good. But this is different. I have to be ready for the match of my life”.

“It’s mentally very, very difficult,” Williams said. “Having to deal with pulmonary embolisms is more mentally challenging because if I have a pain in my leg, I automatically go to the worst-case scenario. I didn’t know I would have such traumatic thoughts”.

“It’s been a crazy 10 months,” Williams said. “I was still pregnant at this time last year. That’s something I have to keep reminding myself. To hear people, say, ‘Oh, she’s favorite.’ Like, the last 16 months, I’ve played in four tournaments and was carrying another human half that time. It’s not frustrating, but it’s like, ‘C’mon, guys, this is pretty awesome”.
