As Williams recalled, her doctors were forced to perform an emergency C-section after her heart rate began to plummet during her contractions.

Williams - who has withdrawn from next week's Australian Open as she attempts to return to her best form - revealed she had blood clots after baby Alexis Olympia was delivered on September 1 previous year via emergency C-Section.

"Sometimes I get really down and feel like, 'Man, I can't do this, '" Williams confessed.

I've been trying to figure out who I'm going to pass the torch to.

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

Williams told nurses she needed a CT scan and blood thinner.

The doctor soon performed an ultrasound on her legs, which revealed nothing.

"I think sometimes women limit themselves", she said. But those clots caused coughing fits, which split her still-healing C-section incision. She told medical staff that she feared she had developed blood clots as she had a history of them. Now she's working her way back to tennis shape.
