Serena Williams reveals in a new Vogue profile that she dealt with severe health concerns following the September birth of her daughter, Alexis Olympia. 

Williams and Olympia are gracing the cover of Vogues February issue. In the story, Williams describes complications she suffered from following Olympia's emergency C-section delivery. 

The first issue was a pulmonary embolism in her lungs, wherein the detailed account Williams virtually had to beg for clot-specified assistance. 

Through her complications though, Williams is determined to regain her standing as the best tennis player in the world.

I dont play to be the second best or the third best. If theres no clear number one.. I can get my spot back. But if there is a clear number one, thats cool, too, because.. Im gonna come for you.

She would also suffer from a large hematoma in her stomach, discovered during surgery to fix her C-section wound - that ruptured in a severe coughing fit from the pulmonary embolism.

Her husband Alexis hits the nail on the head: "Consider for a moment that your body is one of the greatest things on this planet, and youre trapped in it."
