Serena Williams has announced that she will undergo additional medical tests as well as she does not intend to compete under such conditions again. These were her first public remarks since her Wimbledon exit this month. She made the comments at the West Classic event, where the tennis star won nine matches and is a two-time winner. In an interview with reporters, she said that the viral infection that she had contacted in London left her confined to her bed for three long days and she was also forbidden by doctors to travel.
Interest about her condition has been building ever since her disoriented performance in her doubles game at Wimbledon. Two days prior to the doubles match, the tennis star had lost to Alize Cornet of France. Even though she has not been able to provide a detailed account of her problem, with sister Venus Williams suffering from Sjogren’s syndrome, the Grand Slam winner said that additional testingwould be performed after the tournament season gets over for familial diseases.
She also said that she continued with her play in spite of not feeling well because she was a fighter who did not like to let down people. She was also unable to comprehend the severity of her illness until later, and compared her current condition to one in 2011 when she had to be hospitalised and operated upon for hematoma. She also revealed at the Press Meet that she did not follow any of the news and speculation related to her bizarre behaviour.
