Serena Williams Treated For Pulmonary Embolism

Uh oh. According to Serena’s rep, she is being treated for a pulmonary embolism, which is a blood clot in the lungs and can be very serious indeed. Other sources say she has had surgery.

Serena Williams, by sufwThis is all a bit bizarre. Williams hasn’t played since Wimbledon last year as only a few weeks after the tournament, she apparently stepped on broken glass in a restaurant and cut her foot badly. Now this has happened I have to think there was a lot more to it.

She’ll have to be out for months longer now. Who know how long? She’s a champion when women’s tennis is crying out for them. She’s also nearer to the end of her career than the beginning, so all told this is a crying shame.

Fingers crossed she makes full recovery and quickly, for the sake of the sport as well as for herself.

Apparently blogs need to cover a certain niche in order to attract readers. My aim is not to attract readers. I don't deny it would be nice not to just be spouting to myself, but the reason I set this blog up was to give myself somewhere to write down my thoughts. If anyone reads them, that's a bonus. This blog will cover a mix of things - anything that comes to mind that I want to write about. I make no promises about how often I will publish new content.
