On Wednesday morning, it was reported that earlier in the week, tennis star Serena Williams was hospitalized after experiencing ill health. Doctors found that Williams had a blood clot in one of her lungs.
"Monday, Serena Williams underwent emergency treatment at Cedars [Medical Center] for a hematoma she suffered as a result of treatment for a more critical situation," a representative for Williams, Nicole Chabot, told the magazine.
"Last week, Serena suffered from a pulmonary embolism [a blood clot in the lungs] which was discovered upon her return to L.A. She had been in New York for doctor appointments for the ongoing issues with her foot," she added.
A pulmonary embolism can be life-threatening. A blood clot in the lung can also be a serious issue, as it can prevent the lung from receiving blood.
